Have you tried each of the county courthouses in the state of Ohio? In Calif anyway, the court sends 2 certified copies of the court's "abstract" listing what each count, special allegation, or enhancement attached to each count is. The sheriff gets one copy for transporting the inmate to the state prison, the 2nd one is sent to the prison. The court keeps the original in the court file. Each law enforcement also gets notified, I don't believe criminal felonies or misdeanor records in california are destroyed. I would try the courthouses in each county first. In California there are 3 indexes, one by case title, one by chronological order, and one by alpa list. My guess is other states do similiar things. Sometimes they are on microfilm, or computer, but don't believe they get destroyed, unless minor infractions. The circumstances are usually in a probation report, in Calif. they're public record about 30 or 60 days from the time of filing or sentencing, whichever is earlier, then they become confidential. Try and talk to a clerk at the courthouses. Any of all counties can send someone to the state prison. Law enforcement involved such as city police would also have a record at one time, unknown on their destruction of records procedures. State Criminal agencies also have criminal records, but unknown if available to public or just other agencies for the justice department.
