When you run a blog, you can see what people googled that led them to your blog. Sometimes the search terms are strange – frankly, you wonder not just how that term brought them to your blog, but also why the creeper wanted to know the answer in the first place.
Sometimes, though, I know the answer and wish that I could respond. So, to you, Mr. “Who do you report a Warden’s misconduct to?”, I have an answer.
First, it depends on what state you’re in. If you’re in Ohio, inmates can report a Warden’s misconduct through the inmate grievance procedure by filing an original grievance directly to the DRC Chief Inspector. An inmate, family member, or concerned citizen could also submit a complaint to the Ohio Inspector General. Last, an inmate, family member, or concerned citizen could contact the legislature’s Correctional Institution Inspection Committee.
If you’re not from Ohio, I am less help to you. There are a handful of inmate advocacy/oversight groups around the nation and you can check some of them out if you scroll down to the bottom of my blog to my “Links” section. I would definitely contact them for assistance. Finally, my guess is that every state has an inspector general and that would be who I would go to, as well.
Hope that helps!
