State v. Cain L-16-1117Appellant's carrying a concealed weapon conviction for carrying a loaded firearm in his front pants pocket without a permit was supported by sufficient evidence and was not against the manifest weight of evidence. Judgment affirmed.OsowikLucas 12/15/2017 12/15/2017 2017-Ohio-9061
In re L.N. WD-16-043Application to reopen appeal granted where appellate counsel's failure to file the transcript from the proceedings below precluded our review on the issue of whether appellant's sexual offender classification hearing complied with R.C. 2152.83.OsowikWood 12/15/2017 12/15/2017 2017-Ohio-9062
State v. Phillips WD-16-029App.R. 26(B) application to reopen appeal granted where defendant showed a "reasonable probability" that his right to a speedy trial under R.C. 2945.71 was violated. Granting application is proper where defendant made a prima facie case that a violation occurred and the state failed to argue that sufficient time was tolled under R.C. 2945.72.MayleWood 12/15/2017 12/15/2017 2017-Ohio-9063
State v. Veley L-16-1038Appellant's conviction for involuntary manslaughter was supported by sufficient evidence and was not against the weight of the evidence where the evidence established that appellant sold the victim heroin laced with fentanyl which caused his death.PietrykowskiLucas 12/15/2017 12/15/2017 2017-Ohio-9064
In re K.L. L-17-1201, L-17-1210Judgment terminating parental rights affirmed.PietrykowskiLucas 12/13/2017 12/13/2017 2017-Ohio-9003
Fuller v. Anchor Pointe Marina L-17-1051Out of court statement of a deceased office worker is not hearsay where it was an admission of a party opponent made by a servant of appellee during the course of her employment. Genuine issue of material fact exists whether appellee agreed to remove the drain plugs from appellants' boat where the office worker told appellants, "We'll take care of it," and "We got it winterized, shored, everything's taken care of." Premises liability claim must fail where appellant had actual knowledge of the hazard.PietrykowskiLucas 12/8/2017 12/8/2017 2017-Ohio-8921
State v. Mick E-16-074The trial court did not abuse its discretion in finding appellant in direct contempt and imposing sanctions because the record revealed he disobeyed lawful orders of the court and obstructed the administration of justice without justification. SingerErie 12/8/2017 12/8/2017 2017-Ohio-8922
State v. Neal L-16-1267An 18-month prison sentence is not error, despite the stated term being the maximum possible sanction within the statutory range of R.C. 2929.14(A)(4), where the sentence is justified under R.C. 2929.11 and 2929.12, and the trial court's findings are supported by the record. Singer Lucas 12/8/2017 12/8/2017 2017-Ohio-8923
State v. Willis WD-16-048Appellant's guilty plea waived review of the trial court's denial of his motion to dismiss. Appellant failed to establish that he received ineffective assistance of counsel before his guilty plea because his attorneys' performance was not deficient. The record does not support appellant's contention that the trial court failed to terminate his administrative license suspension upon his conviction.MayleWood 12/8/2017 12/8/2017 2017-Ohio-8924
In re D.M. L-16-1237, L-16-1238, L-16-1270In reverse-bindover procedure under R.C. 2151.121(B)(3), juvenile court did not abuse its discretion or violate juvenile offender's due process rights when it transferred jurisdiction to the adult court for imposition of sentence. Also, the adult court's decision to impose consecutive sentences was fully supported by the record and the judgment entry.MayleLucas 12/1/2017 12/1/2017 2017-Ohio-8768
