Ohio Jails Debtors

from RTAmerica:

According to a report by the ACLU of Ohio, the state is putting people in jail for for not paying their debts. The study revealed that 1 of 5 people in Heron County prisons were behind bars due to failing to pay pending obligations even though the practice was outlawed in 1833.

    These are VERY misleading stories.
    People are NOT being imprisoned for debts. They are going to jail for failure to appear in court and failure to pay associated court fines. Going to jail for not paying state imposed fines is nothing new and VERY different from 19th century debtors prisons.

    Illinois is pulling this same stunt.
