    Death-row inmate deemed ‘too dangerous’ to relocate

    When Ohio’s death row moves to Chillicothe Correctional Institution this month, six notorious prisoners will be left behind, including Springfield’s Jason Dean.

    State officials said the six are all too dangerous to move. Each of the men is considered a “Level 5” security risk, prone to repeated violent actions against prison staff and inmates. As such, they need to stay at Ohio’s only super maximum facility in Youngstown, said Carlo LoParo, spokesman for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.

    Four were participants in the Lucasville prison riot in 1993, including Jason Robb of Dayton. Dean twice assaulted corrections officers, LoParo said.

    “He had assaulted a guard at the prison (by) making a shank out of a toothbrush. I know he had another assault on a guard where he took a razor blade out of a razor and cut a guard (and) bit a guard’s face,” said Andy Wilson, Clark County Prosecutor.

    The six will remain at Ohio State Penitentiary in Youngstown, where some of the state’s death row inmates have been housed since 2005, LoParo said.

    The move will consolidate death row, currently spread between the Youngstown facility and Mansfield Correctional Institution, into one unit at Chillicothe, LoParo said.

    The consolidation will add hundreds of maximum security prison cells at the Mansfield and Youngstown facilities, which will be used to separate the state’s most violent and difficult-to-manage inmates from the general prison population, LoParo said.

    In a retrial in September, Dean, 37, was convicted of killing Titus Arnold, a youth counselor, in 2005. Dean and a 16-year-old accomplice, Joshua Wade, robbed Arnold of $6 as he left work.

    Prosecutors said Dean tried to shoot Arnold, but his gun jammed, so he manipulated Wade into shooting Arnold. The crimes were part of a 13-day spree by the two after Dean was released from prison after serving five years on a theft charge.

    But it’s his violence behind bars that’s earned him an isolation cell in Youngstown until his execution.

    A search through hundreds of pages documenting Dean’s history in Ohio’s prison system turned up numerous acts of violence.

    Dean was convicted of attempted escape and vandalism for throwing a chair through the ballistics glass window of the Clark County Jail last spring. A cell search in the Madison Correctional Facility in 1995 turned up a handmade knife Dean admitted to making. In 2004, guards confiscated a 18-inch piece of metal sharpened to look like a sword that Dean taped to his arm while in the recreation yard.

    In addition, Dean was documented for numerous assaults against other inmates dating back to the early 1990s.

    There’s no question at the Clark County prosecutor’s office, Wilson said, that “as long as he’s breathing,” Dean is a danger.

    “Even being locked up he’s still a danger to everyone he comes into contact with,” Wilson said.

    The other inmates who will stay in Youngstown are: James Were, 54; Keith Lamar, 42; Carlos Sanders, 48; Jason Robb, 44; and Edward Lang, 24.

    Lang has assaulted a correction officer. The other four were participants in the Lucasville riot.

    Corrections Officer Robert Vallandingham, 40, and nine inmates were killed during the 11-day uprising in April 1993 at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility near Lucasville.

    Lamar was sentenced to death for killing five of the inmates, Robb for killing Vallandingham and one inmate, Were for killing Vallandingham and Sanders for ordering Vallandingham’s death.

    Robb was convicted of a 1984 homicide in Montgomery County.

    Lang was convicted in Stark County Common Pleas Court of killing two men during a 2006 drug rip-off in Canton.

    LoParo said “Level 1” includes inmates who are the least likely to engage in violent acts and are likely convicted of crimes not involving violence. These inmates are housed in a dormitory-type environment, with multiple inmates being held in the same area and sleeping in bunk beds, LoParlo said.

    In contrast, a “Level 4” inmate has committed a violent act against a guard or inmate or participated in gang and disruptive activities on at least one occasion. Depending on the severity, LoParlo said the inmate could be held in total isolation or have very restricted access to the general prison population.

    In the case of a “Level 5,” LoParlo said those inmates have a “significant history of engaging in violent activity.” They are contained in isolated cells 23 hours a day, and are allowed one hour of recreation alone. Meals, religious services and classes are all completed in isolation, he said.

    Not all death row inmates are classified by the state as violent.

    In 2009 and 2010, DRC recorded 5,070 violent incidents throughout its prisons. While 206 occurred at the Mansfield Correctional Institution and 63 occurred at the Ohio State Penitentiary, only five included death row inmates, the state said.

    Ohio has 148 death row inmates, and the lone female is at the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville. Two with serious medical conditions are housed at the Franklin Medical Center in Columbus. These inmates will remain at those facilities.

    As of October, there were 116 death row inmates at Ohio State and 29 at Mansfield, according to the corrections department.

    Dean death penalty appeal to be heard Tuesday

    A Springfield man sentenced to death in 2011 is appealing his case to the Ohio Supreme Court, and is scheduled to argue that case Tuesday.

    Jason Dean, 40, contends his sentence was out of proportion to his role in a four-day crime spree that ended in a murder.

    Dean was convicted in 2011 on 13 charges that included aggravated murder, attempted murder and aggravated robbery. Prosecutors have said Dean was the ringleader of a series of crimes in which then 16-year-old Joshua Wade shot and killed Titus Arnold during a robbery attempt. Arnold was a youth counselor who was robbed of $6 as he was leaving work.

    Court records show oral arguments are scheduled in the Ohio Supreme Court Tuesday. Dean’s attorneys couldn’t be reached for comment Friday.

    Dean’s attorneys argued that, among other errors, prosecutors had little evidence that the crimes were calculated. They argue that evidence was based solely on testimony from Dean’s former girlfriend, who also admitted she “lied repeatedly to the police about the facts of the case.”

    They also argued Dean’s sentence was out of proportion, because Wade, who killed Titus, only received a life sentence.

    But prosecutors countered as a juvenile, Wade was ineligible for the death penalty, and the sentencing options for the two cases “are fundamentally different.”

    That argument is the crux of the case, said Andy Wilson, Clark County prosecutor. But he compared the case to the D.C. sniper case, in which John Allen Muhammad convinced a juvenile to commit a series of shootings across Virginia and Maryland in 2002. Muhammed was put to death, while the juvenile was sentenced to life in prison.

    “Jason Dean is the one who’s responsible,” Wilson said. “He’s the one who provided the weapons. He’s the one who provided the vehicles. He’s the one who provided the motive. He’s the one who took this kid under his wing and he pointed a gun into the chest of Titus Arnold and squeezed the trigger and it misfired. Had it not jammed, he actually would have been the trigger man.”

    Court records show Dean and Wade were also accused of other crimes, including a shooting at a convenience store and a drive-by shooting on Dibert Avenue.

    Prosecutors said during the drive-by, several people, including a pregnant woman and a 1-year-old girl, were nearly killed.

    Wade was convicted in the case and sentenced to life in 2006. Dean was sentenced to death that same year, but the conviction was overturned in 2010 after the Ohio Supreme Court determined Clark County Judge Douglas Rastatter made rulings and statements during the trial that prevented Dean from having a fair hearing.

    Dean was sentenced to death again after an additional hearing in 2011, but the appeal from his attorneys cites 15 errors as grounds to overturn the death sentence.

    Dean’s attorneys also argued there should have been separate trials for each of the significant incidents. Instead, prosecutors pulled the incidents into a single case to secure a death sentence, they argued.

    “As a result, the prosecution was able to secure Dean’s conviction and death sentence by burying the jurors with an avalanche of bad facts, rather that by distinctly proving each charged offense,” Dean’s attorneys wrote in their appeal.

    But prosecutors argued in their rebuttal that Ohio law favors joining the cases when proper, and Dean’s crimes were committed as part of a “course of conduct over a period of several days.”

    “Here, the three shooting incidents were specifically alleged to be part of a ‘course of conduct’ that involved the ‘purposeful killing of or attempt to kill two or more persons,’ ” prosecutors argued. “So, without doubt, the claims were properly joined.”

    Court records show both sides will have 30 minutes to present their case Tuesday.

    Ohio Supreme Court upholds condemned killer’s new death sentence handed down after retrial

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence of a man convicted of killing a youth counselor following a retrial and resentencing.

    The court’s 6-1 ruling on Tuesday said defendant Jason Dean showed little remorse and that the circumstances of the slaying during a robbery outweighed any evidence Dean presented in his favor.

    The 40-year-old Dean was convicted in 2006 of killing youth counselor Titus Arnold during a four-day shooting spree in Springfield.

    Five years ago, the state Supreme Court ordered a new trial for Dean even as the justices acknowledged substantial evidence of his guilt. That unanimous ruling said a Clark County judge was so biased against Dean’s attorneys that he tainted the entire trial.

    Dean was re-tried in 2011 and sentenced to death again.

    Supreme Court rejects appeal from Springfield man on death row

    By Jack Torry
    The Dayton Daily News

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court rejected Monday an appeal from a Springfield man who was sentenced to death in 2011 for his role in the murder of a counselor for troubled youth.

    The justices, without comment, let stand a ruling last year by the Ohio Supreme Court that upheld the conviction and death penalty of Jason Dean, 41, who took part in a four-day shooting spree that culminated in the death of Titus Arnold of Springfield.

    Dean’s co-defendant, Joshua Wade, who was 16 at the time, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

    The crime spree in April of 2005 included three shootings in four days in Springfield. During the last shooting, Arnold was killed by Dean’s accomplice, 16-year-old Josh Wade, after the two chased him through a parking lot as he was leaving his job at a home for at-risk youth.

    Wade was tried as an adult but wasn’t eligible for the death penalty as a minor. He was convicted of aggravated murder and other charges and is currently incarcerated at the Warren Correctional Institution.

    Dean had two trials. His first conviction in 2006 for aggravated murder, attempted murder and several other crimes was overturned on appeal by the Ohio Supreme Court, which ruled he didn’t have a fair and impartial judge.

    Dean was tried again and found guilty of the same charges and sentenced to death.

    He appealed his case to the Ohio Supreme Court again, arguing that errors had occurred during his second trial, including the admission of irrelevant evidence and improper instruction to jurors.

    The state court rejected all 15 of his arguments. That court also reviewed whether Dean’s sentence was appropriate, given that he didn’t fire the shot that killed Arnold.

    He’s currently held at a state penitentiary in Youngstown. His attorney, Kate McGarry, said by email Monday that, “Mr. Dean is still pursuing” his post-conviction appeals in state court.

    McGarry argued in the U.S. Supreme Court appeal that Dean’s death sentence should be vacated because Wade received a lighter sentence of life in prison.

    Dean doesn’t have a scheduled execution date.

    In 2011, Ohio’s death row inmates were moved to the Chillicothe Correctional Institution, but six prisoners were left behind in Youngstown, including Dean, because they were deemed too dangerous to move.

    Each of the men were considered a “Level 5” security risk, prone to repeated violent actions against prison staff and inmates. As such, they were left at Ohio’s only super maximum facility in Youngstown. Dean has twice assaulted corrections officers.
