Rule 5120-5-08 | Procedures for handling confiscated money.
(A) Any money, including but not limited to cash, check, or money order, in the possession of an inmate, or any money received by an inmate from an unapproved source or in an unapproved form, as defined by rule 5120-5-02 of the Administrative Code, shall be confiscated.
(B) The warden or designee shall log all confiscated money by showing the amount, date received, source, and other conditions of confiscation and disposition. The confiscated money shall then be forwarded, within a reasonable time, to the sender, if known. If the sender is not known after a reasonable effort, the money shall be disposed of on application to and order of any court having jurisdiction over the institution for deposit in the inmate's industrial and entertainment fund if not required as evidence in a criminal prosecution or rules infraction board proceeding. When the confiscated money is no longer required as evidence, the court application process should be initiated.
