In re K.B. 1-18-07Juvenile did not demonstrate ineffective assistance of counsel.ShawAllen 7/2/2018 7/2/2018 2018-Ohio-2619
State v. Rhoads 6-18-02Escape under R.C. 2921.34(A)(3) and failure to notify of change of address under R.C. 2950.05(F)(1) are offenses of dissimilar import and defendant-appellant can be convicted of both offenses. The trial court did not err by sentencing defendant-appellant without obtaining a new or updated presentence investigation because the trial court did not sentence defendant-appellant to a community-control sanction or probation.PrestonHardin 7/2/2018 7/2/2018 2018-Ohio-2620
State v. Stein 8-17-39Counsel was ineffective for not objecting to testimony regarding the fact that defendant was a thief and a drug dealer when the charges were unrelated to those prior bad acts. The State then argued that testimony as a basis for finding that the defendant was not entitled to a verdict of self-defense. Given that the remaining testimony was conflicting, the evidence is not overwhelming that a jury would have convicted the defendant. Thus, the appellant was prejudiced.WillamowskiLogan 7/2/2018 7/2/2018 2018-Ohio-2621

State v. Fisher 14-17-09A legal challenge to the imposition of jail credit time must be raised in a timely filed direct appeal. Otherwise, the legal challenge will be barred by res judicata.

State v. Woodum 8-17-53The trial court did not err by failing to inform the defendant that he could not use drugs of abuse while in prison. The trial court considered all of the statutory sentencing guidelines and the sentence was within the sentencing range, so there was no abuse of discretion.WillamowskiLogan 6/25/2018 6/25/2018 2018-Ohio-2440
Smith v. Wyandot Mem. Hosp. 16-17-07The trial court did not err by dismissing plaintiff-appellant’s wrongful-death action asserting a medical claim against defendants-appellees because it is barred by Ohio’s medical-malpractice statute of repose. PrestonWyandot 6/25/2018 6/25/2018 2018-Ohio-2441
In re C.N. 6-17-16, 6-17-23If a conflict of interest exists between the legal custodian and the child, the trial court is to appoint a guardian ad litem.
