State v. Baskin 1-16-20; 1-16-21Appellant failed to prove by clear and convincing evidence that the record does not support the trial court's sentence in these cases. Therefore, we do not find the sentences entered by the trial court contrary to law.ShawAllen 10/17/2016 10/17/2016 2016-Ohio-7346
State v. Davis 2-16-09Defendant-Appellant, Jamarcus Terrell Davis, appeals the judgment of the Court of Common Pleas of Auglaize County convicting him of possession of heroin, attempted possession of having a weapon while under a disability, and illegal conveyance of cocaine into a jail and sentencing him to a total of 66 months in prison. On appeal, Davis argues that the trial court erred in failing to consider and apply the felony sentencing guidelines and sentencing him to a total prison term that exceeded the maximum prison term allowed for the most serious offense of which he was convicted. For the reasons that follow, we affirm the judgment of the trial court. RogersAuglaize 10/17/2016 10/17/2016 2016-Ohio-7347
State v. Fonseca 7-16-04The defendant-appellant's intimidation-of-a-witness-in-a-criminal-case conviction is based on sufficient evidence because the victim-witness is a witness as defined by R.C. 2921.04(E). The trial court did not err in sentencing the defendant-appellant to 36 months in prison because the sentence is within the permissible statutory range, the trial court properly considered the criteria found in R.C. 2929.11 and 2929.12, and the record clearly and convincingly supports the trial court's findings under R.C. 2929.11 and 2929.12.PrestonHenry 10/17/2016 10/17/2016 2016-Ohio-7348
