State v. Strong 18CA3663CRIMINAL-MOTION TO SUPPRESS-FOURTH AMENDMENT RIGHT TO PRIVACY-SEARCH AND SEIZURE-ARREST WARRANT-INFORMANT'S TIP-COLLECTIVE KNOWLEDGE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT - Law enforcement's prior knowledge of an active, outstanding arrest warrant at the time of the initial encounter during an investigatory stop provided law enforcement with reasonable suspicion to believe defendant had committed a criminal offense and to arrest defendant on the warrant. Further, an officer may drive knowledge from an informant's tip and may also rely on the collective knowledge of other officers involved in a search or investigation when assessing probable cause.SmithRoss 7/8/2019 7/16/2019 2019-Ohio-2888

State v. Blevins 18CA2CRIMINAL-EVIDENCE OF PRIOR CALCULATION AND DESIGN-VOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER JURY INSTRUCTION-RIGHT TO BE PRESENT AT ALL CRITICAL STAGES-JURY QUESTIONS-INEFFECTIVE ASSISTANCE - Appellant's aggravated murder conviction, including the jury's finding of prior calculation and design, was supported by sufficient evidence. Appellant could not demonstrate that he was prejudiced by the trial court's alleged error with regard to the voluntary manslaughter jury instruction. Trial court's provision of written answers to written questions from the jury cannot be considered a critical state of the proceedings to which Appellant had statutory and constitutional rights to be present. While counsel's open-ended question to a lead detective was deficient performance, it did not rise to the level of prejudice as set forth in Strictland v. Washington. Despite Appellant's age as a mitigating factor, we find Appellant's life prison term is supported by the record and is not clearly and convincingly contrary to law.SmithPickaway 6/26/2019 7/3/2019 2019-Ohio-2744
