That is something you need to hire an attorney to review.  Your information would be considered "hearsay" and not truly admissible in court.  You need a lawyer to subpoena records, video, audio, medical records, etc. You need him to review the correctional facility, the policies and processes and medical protocol.

Try www.attorneypages.com and also the Ohio state bar.

Some stuff to look at:
