An Enquirer investigation revealed widespread problems in Ohio's parole system, including numerous instances in which sentencing guidelines were not adhered to by the parole board. The flawed system allowed more than 500 murderers to leave prison since the early 1980's many of whom spent less than a decade in prison before they were paroled. Some were behind bars only four or five years. The investigation found that the parole board is overworked, bureaucratic foul-ups are routine, and record keeping is cumbersome and outdated. (Feb. 26 - 27, 1995)
