Ohio CA2015-05-042Wrongful Imprisonment; "Error in Procedure"; R.C. 2743.48(A)(1)-(5): Trial court did not err in awarding summary judgment against appellant on his wrongful imprisonment claim as he failed to show that an "error in procedure" had been made after his sentencing and during or after his imprisonment, or that he was actually innocent.RinglandWarren 9/28/2015 9/28/2015 2015-Ohio-3938

The trial court also did not err by imposing consecutive sentences where the trial court made all the necessary findings required by R.C. 2929.14(C)(4). However, because the trial court did not then incorporate those findings into its sentencing entry, the matter was remanded to the trial court to correct the clerical error through the issuance of a nunc pro tunc sentencing entry.S.
