The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections says investigators are looking into allegations guards showed pirated movies to inmates at the Lorain Correctional Institution before their scheduled DVD release date.

The probe follows a complaint by an inmate being held on a parole violation. He previously spent time in federal prison for running a subscription website that distributed pirated movies, computer games and software.
