Warden During Lucasville Uprising To Kick Off Speaker Series


The man who served as warden during the 1993 Lucasville riot in southern Ohio is kicking off a new lecture series sponsored by the state legislative panel that monitors Ohio's prisons.

Arthur Tate will share recollections of his time at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility during a brownbag presentation at noon Thursday.

His talk is part of the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee's "Beyond Bars" speaker series. It will feature monthly programs on topics related to corrections, re-entry and prison diversion programs that might involve substance abuse treatment, mental health counseling or education.

The 11-day siege at Lucasville was one of the deadliest prison uprisings in U.S. history, leaving one guard and nine inmates dead.
