The Ohio Inspector General's office says Belmont Correctional Institution warden Michele Miller improperly offered inmates credit for community-service hours in exchange for 1 dollar donations to charities of her choice.

The IG also says Miller tried to remove 200 thousand earned community-service hours from a report for the last three months of 2015 after she became aware of an investigation. The findings have been referred to the county prosecutor and the Ohio Ethics Commission. Miller has yet to comment.
