After the 1754 Indian and French War, Ohio became a British possession, although it was the French fur traders who first colonized the area. The Northwest Territory, including Ohio, was created at the end of the American Revolution when the British lost control. It was on March 1, 1803, that Ohio achieved statehood, but it was only in 1953 that a formal declaration was signed by President Dwight Eisenhower with special notation of bearing the original date it became a state. Since 1869, Ohio has sent a succession of resident and native Ohioans to the White House, earning it the nickname ‘Mother of Modern Presidents’. Other notable acclaims for which Ohio is famous are its National Football League Hall of Fame in Canton, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, and Cincinnati’s National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. The capital city of Ohio is Columbus.

The state of Ohio has 88 counties, with nine of them existing in 1802 during the Ohio Constitutional Convention. The Constitution of Ohio permits the different counties to establish their own charter government, just like the ones that are used by the villages and cities, yet only Cuyahoga County and Summit County have taken steps to do so.

The Ohio Supreme Court is the highest court and the court of last resort. The Ohio state judiciaries are composed of three levels: the Supreme Court, the intermediate court or the district appeal courts, and the courts of common pleas which are the lowest court.

The Supreme Court has six associate justices and a chief judge who can hear appeals coming from the courts of appeals at their discretion, and, over limited matters, gets the original jurisdiction.

Offender Search Web Page

The purpose and specifics of the Offender Search Web Page in each state varies. Read the disclosures carefully. Updates to the database could be biweekly, monthly and daily depending on the states Corrections Department schedule. Some searches show offenders incarcerated in the entire prison system including county jails and some only state prisons. Sometimes historical offender data is available and sometimes only current inmate records are listed. Youth and adult offenders are sometimes located on separate search portals.
