Section 5120.59 | Verification of prisoner's identity before release.


Before a prisoner is released from a state correctional institution, the department of rehabilitation and correction shall attempt to verify the prisoner's identification and social security number. If the department is not able to verify the prisoner's identification and social security number, if the prisoner has no other documentary evidence required by the registrar of motor vehicles for the issuance of an identification card under section 4507.50 of the Revised Code, and if the department determines that the prisoner is legally living in the United States, the department shall issue to the prisoner upon the prisoner's release an identification card that the prisoner may present to the registrar or a deputy registrar of motor vehicles.
