Are Ohio AG’s hands tied to do Catholic Church sex abuse probe? Maybe not, experts say
The Columbus Dispatch (subscription required): Jonathan Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law, noted that as the state’s top lawyer, the Ohio Attorney General makes their own choices about how best to use the department’s time and resources. He said criminal investigations and prosecutions begin with local authorities. However, the attorney general can launch a probe by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation if invited to do so by local prosecutors or local law enforcement.
