Hi,
Just checking to see if my records request was received. Thanks,

From: Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction

Hello,
We are currently working on this request.
Thank you.

Hello,

Attached are records responsive to your first two requests for records of JPay-related communications. Some records have been redacted or withheld because they are exempt from disclosure as attorney-client privileged communications, per Ohio Revised Code (R.C.) 149.43(A)(1)(v) (see also State ex rel. Lanham v. DeWine, 135 Ohio St.3d 191, 2013‐Ohio‐199, ¶ 26); exempt as confidential law enforcement investigatory records, per R.C. 149.43(A)(1)(h); or exempt as security records, per R.C. 149.433(B).

Your third request for records seeks “evidence logs (record number SEC-0026) reporting major contraband.” DRC does not maintain a record number SEC-0026, nor a form number SEC-0026. DRC does not have an evidence log or major contraband log. DRC does have a contraband log record, which records are maintained and organized by each of DRC’s 28 institutions. Those forms are organized by month, not by type or classification of contraband. As presently written, this request does not properly identify with clarity the actual, existing records you seek. To the extent you wish to clarify your third request to seek the monthly contraband logs or otherwise identify what specific records you seek, DRC will search for any responsive records.

An additional files will be sent in separate emails.

Thank you.
