A warden at a local correctional facility has been re-assigned by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections.
John Coleman was removed from his position of warden at the Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution last Monday, April 8th. Jo Ellen Smith, spokes person for ODRC says Coleman has been re-assigned to a position in the adult parole authority here in Lima.
Coleman started as a correctional officer at Mansfield in 1991 moving up to deputy warden before becoming the warden at Oakwood. Smith would not comment on why Coleman was re-assigned.
