(24/7 News) --  Dozens of Ohio prison inmates will soon be moving out of Athens County.  

State officials announced plans yesterday to shutter the Hocking Correctional Unit, citing the high daily cost of housing low-security inmates.  

More than 400 inmates will be moved to other prisons and more than 100 employees will be offered jobs elsewhere.
