An Ohio sheriff in calling wintertime evictions heartless and has asked the state’s governor to stop them:

From WLWT.com, via Housing Wire:

An area sheriff has ordered deputies to ignore eviction orders when people have nowhere else to live.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said evictions in winter weather and during an economic recession are heartless and those cases should be sent back to the courts and resolved some other way.

Jones on Tuesday ordered deputies to ensure that people have shelter before they're forced out of their homes.
