Administrative release for certain escapees.
The director of rehabilitation and
correction may grant an administrative release, as defined in section
2967.01 of the Revised Code, to a
prisoner who escaped from a state correctional institution and whose
whereabouts are unknown when both of the following apply:
The ninetieth anniversary of the
prisoner's birth has passed;
period of at least twenty years has passed since the date of the prisoner's
director shall adopt rules pursuant to section
111.15 of the Revised Code for the
granting of an administrative release under this section.
An administrative release granted under
this section does not operate to restore the rights and privileges forfeited by
conviction as provided in section
2961.01 of the Revised Code.
The authority to grant an
administrative release that is contained in this section is independent of the
administrative release provisions contained in section
2967.17 of the Revised Code.
