COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Workers at four Ohio prisons are facing possible disciplinary action over downloading and copying music for free from a pay service used by inmates.

A report from the inspector general’s office finds that 16 state prison employees downloaded hundreds of songs along with some movies.

None of the employees are expected to face criminal prosecution.

A spokeswoman says the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction is investigating what happened and reviewing its information and technology policies.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that says one employee at the state prison in Lorain downloaded 550 songs and at least one movie.

He told investigators that he didn’t know it was illegal.
