State v. Wright CA2017-10-021Appellant's conviction for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor was supported by sufficient evidence and was not against the manifest weight of the evidence. Trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying appellant's motion for a mistrial. Trial court erred by imposing court costs in sentencing entry where court indicated that the costs were suspended at sentencing hearing.M. PowellFayette 5/21/2018 5/21/2018 2018-Ohio-1982
State v. Hawkins CA2017-07-013Trial court did not err in denying appellant's motion to suppress, as reasonable and articulable suspicion existed to authorize law enforcement's stop of appellant's vehicle. The color discrepancy between the vehicle's actual paint color (black) and the BMV's registration (white) gave the officer reason to believe that the vehicle may have been stolen or the license plate switched from another vehicle where the officer testified in his 14 years of experience, car thieves often replace a vehicle's original license plate with a stolen plate taken from a similar vehicle to conceal the theft.HendricksonFayette 5/21/2018 5/21/2018 2018-Ohio-1983
State v. Aburas CA2017-10-054Appellant's sentence was not contrary to law where the trial court sentenced appellant within the statutory range, considered the necessary statutory requirements, and advised appellant of postrelease control sanctions.

PowellButler 5/14/2018 5/14/2018 2018-Ohio-1892
State v. Allgeyer CA2017-06-007Defendant, the former director of a Pee Wee cheerleading organization, appeals her conviction for grand theft, arising out of allegations that she used the organization's bank card to obtain cash and pay for thousands of dollars of unauthorized meals, fuel, and personal goods. Defendant's convictions were supported by sufficient evidence and the manifest weight of the evidence where the evidence indicated that the director would have known that her use of the bank card would not be permitted by the organization and where she failed to provide receipts for suspect transactions to the organization treasurer. Circumstantial evidence established that the defendant possessed and used the bank card.RinglandClinton 5/14/2018 5/14/2018 2018-Ohio-1893

State v. Moore CA2017-07-110Trial court did not err in denying appellant's motion to suppress where appellant was not subject to a custodial interrogation requiring the issuance of Miranda warnings and the totality of the circumstances demonstrated the statement was voluntarily made.
