This work has been ten years in the making. The physical and emotional trauma inflictedduring the time between April 11 and April 21, 1993 has left many scars. While most of the physical scars have longsince faded, it is the emotional scars that have lingered. After 11 days of brutal captivity, two weeks of hospitalization, months of physical healing and therapy, seventeen post-riottrials, two strokes, a lay-off, and transfer to another agency, Larry Dotson isready-ready to tell the story that has yet to be told, and ready to take the next step in the healing process. This book will not tell the complete story of the Lucasvilleriot. No single book can, because everyhostage, staff member, inmate rioter, non-rioting inmate, their respective families, and all those assigned to SOCF during the riot, has a story to tell. No, this book will only tell the story of one of the hostages. . . Larry Dotson. Larry was working in an area in which he was not originally assigned, but because of the large number of staff "call offs" he found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Following a severe beating while attempting to rescue afellow staff member, Larry was brutally beaten and held hostage by two violent and rival gangs that put aside their differences and put forth a unified front in defiance of the prison administration. . . the administration that Larry represented. In the pages that follow, are the details that until now have been reserved for the administrators, investigators, lawyers, and juries. It is a story that all those who find themselves in a position of advocating budget cut backs, staff reductions, and a moderation ofsecurity, need to read and absorb. In1993, Ohio ranked a pathetic last in inmate to correction officerratio. Liberal federal court ordersstrengthened inmate's rights while compromising the safety and security ofthose who were responsible for carrying out the decisions. Those court orders,

Book Description 1st Book Library. Hardcover. Condition: New. 310 pages. Dimensions: 9.5in. x 6.4in. x 0.9in.The 11-day prison riot in Lucasville, OH, from April 11-April 21, 1993, was the longest and third deadliest prison riot in American history. Nine inmates and one prison guard were killed during the standoff. Nearly 40 million worth of damage was done to the prison. As told to Gary Williams, Siege in Lucasville is the gripping story of Larry Dotson, a prison guard held hostage during the riot at the Southern Ohio Correctional Institution in Lucasville. With a meticulous day-by-day account of the standoff, Siege offers a first-hand account of the torture and terror that Dotson experienced in the midst of rival prison gangs struggling to negotiate with authorities and co-exist with each other. Dotsons beatings resulted in two weeks of hospitalization, months of physical therapy, and years of emotional healing. Like several of his fellow hostages, Dotson has continued to bear the effects of Lucasville, as he has endured 17 post-riot trials, two strokes, and a layoff. Siege also features a special section with post-riot investigation reports and a critical analysis, conducted by Williams, of the administrative failure of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. While legislative changes were implemented in the aftermath of the Lucasville riot, the Ohio prison system has sunk back to pre-Lucasville conditions. On December 6, 2005, at the same Lucasville prison, correction officer Marda Abrams was beaten with her own side-handled baton so severely that she has not returned to work. This incident capped off a year where assaults against prison staff increased 162 at Lucasville. To all those who advocate budget cutbacks, staff reductions, and a moderation of security for the Ohio prison system, Siege is a haunting reminder that those legislators and administrators who are accountable are never required to pay the real consequences for their decisions.
