Toledo v. Williams L-17-1120Plain error. Amendment of complaints. Degree of offenses and penalties changed. Nature or identity of charges changed. Plea. Insufficient evidence.SingerLucas 5/18/2018 5/18/2018 2018-Ohio-1954
State v. Roberson L-16-1131Trial court did not commit plain error by failing to merge aggravated burglary in violation of R.C. 2911.11(A)(1) and rape in violation of R.C. 2907.02(A)(2) and (B) because the two offenses were of dissimilar import. The aggravated burglary conviction resulted in harm, i.e., theft of the victim's belongings, that was separate and identifiable from the physical harm that resulted from the rape.

State v. Perez WD-17-017No abuse of discretion in denying appellant's motion for continuance. Crim.R. 29 motion properly denied where sufficient evidence satisfies elements of felonious assault. Trial court complied with sentencing criteria under R.C. 2929.11 and 2929.12. Appellant failed to show conviction was against manifest weight because evidence was competent and credible and supported the verdict and conviction. SingerWood 5/18/2018 5/18/2018 2018-Ohio-1956
In re L.B. S-17-028Trial court's finding that appellee's numerous relationships with women and resulting frequent changing of residences is not a change of circumstances sufficient to warrant reexamination of its prior custody determination is not an abuse of discretion.PietrykowskiSandusky 5/18/2018 5/18/2018 2018-Ohio-1957
State v. Osley L-17-1117Anders appeal. Appellant's sentence is not clearly and convincingly contrary to law where it is within the statutory range, postrelease control was properly imposed, and the trial court stated that it had considered R.C. 2929.11 and 2929.12.PietrykowskiLucas 5/18/2018 5/18/2018 2018-Ohio-1958

Woods v. Progressive Direct Ins. Co. E-17-021; E-17-022In successive actions regarding the interpretation of an automobile insurance policy, the trial court did not err in either granting motions for default judgment or summary judgment.

State v. Williams L-17-1245Appellant's motion for a new trial lacks merit, and also, is barred by res judicata. Judgment affirmed.OsowikLucas 5/11/2018 5/11/2018 2018-Ohio-1868
State v. Tucker WD-16-063Failure to conduct preliminary hearing within ten days did not entitle appellant to dismissal of charges where he failed to object and was later indicted. Court committed no plain error in instructing jury on "knowingly." State presented evidence of "force" element of robbery and jury did not clearly lose way in finding element proven. Trial court was not required to consider ability to pay costs of prosecution. Prosecutor's improper comments during closing did not rise to level of plain error.MayleWood 5/11/2018 5/11/2018 2018-Ohio-1869
