Description

The Columbus Dispatch engaged in a four-day computer-assisted series to document a modern-day debtor prison where cash weighs heavier than guilt in Ohio's largest municipal court system. Stories exposed a secret cash deal by prosecutors that allowed drunken drivers to keep convictions off their record by paying $1,000; false statistics that hid one of the lowest rates of domestic violence convictions nationally; interesting results with tracking of homeless among other issues.(Sept. 25 - 28, 1995)
