“V The Cincinnati Pott Saturday October 19 1991 5 A Warner denied his freedom from smoke jail By Sharon Moloney Marvin Warner who contends that second-hand smoke’s effect on his health Is enough to warrant his release from prison got a pointed answer Friday from Ohio’s special prosecutor "The courts don’t mandate comfortable prisons" In addition medical officials at the Madison Correctional Institute say in sworn affidavits that Warner never has asked to be transferred to its available smoke-free wing They said that further Warner asked for a transfer from his job in the smoke-free library to a Job as a porter in a dormitory where smoking is allowed As for his complaints about his health and prostate condition the same medical officials testified that Warner has broken several medical appointments because of visits from outside refused follow-up exams and treatment at the Ohio State University urology department and failed to complete evaluation of eye and dental problems The affidavits were part of a legal memorandum filed by Ohio Special Prosecutor Lawrence Kane on Friday opposing Warner's request for bail and a release from Jail while his appeal is considered by the federal court Warner was convicted on nine counts of unauthorized acts and securities violations after the collapse of his Home State Savings Bank in 1985 He began serving a Stt-year prison term last April Two requests for shock probation and parole have since been turned down In his latest effort to get out of jail Warner has contended that his health is being damaged by second-hand smoke and his prostate trouble is not being handled as well as under private care Warner underwent surgery for his prostate at Ohio State shortly after entering Jail but medical officials say he has refused follow-up treatment "Petitioner Marvin Warner now wants this court to adopt a practice of releasing state prisoners who can produce a doctor’s note" the Kane memo said "Warner’s proposal would undoubtedly be popular with his fellow inmates Few doctors would deny that life inside a prison is generally p received as more stressful and unpleasant than life outside "The Constitution does not mandate comfortable prisons" The prosecutor said Warner’s complaints about his medical treatment are groundless and based on his own physician's disagreement with other qualified physicians Prisoners with far greater health problems than Warner's have been ordered by the courts to serve their sentences the prosecutor said Dr Lawrence H Mendel medical director for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction said male inmates over 60 are usually confined at Hocking Correctional Facility Nelsonvllle which has programs for older inmates But he said Warner was assigned to Madison at his request He said the efforts of urologists at Ohio State to monitor Warner’s condition "have been directly hampered by Warner’s refusal to attend one follow-up appointment and his refusal to undergo a follow-up direct cysto-scoplc exam of the bladder" UJ3 Magistrate Robert Steinberg will hear oral arguments on Warner’s bid for bail on Oct 31 Book ’em Dano Library leaders:
