Dr. Sam Sheppard, serving a life sentence in the Ohio Penitentiary, was transferred from his hospital post at the prison, to the planing mill, after another inmate died of alcohol poisoning. Sheppard was eventually exonerated after it was determined the alcohol was most likely obtained from a different source than the hospital.
