State v. Gueli WD-17-028Trial court erred in failing to give appellant credit for time served when sentencing appellant. Sentencing judgment reversed and remanded.OsowikWood 3/16/2018 3/16/2018 2018-Ohio-997
State v. Hite L-17-1048An 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 supported by the record and the trial court considers R.C. 2929.11 and 2929.12 in imposing the sentence.SingerLucas 3/16/2018 3/16/2018 2018-Ohio-998
State v. Mick E-16-073The defendant, who was convicted of multiple sexual offenses against children and sentenced to life in prison, was denied effective assistance of trial counsel where his counsel refused to participate in any phase of the trial.OsowikErie 3/16/2018 3/16/2018 2018-Ohio-999
State v. Williams L-17-1064Trial court erred in accepting a no contest plea when the court had not informed the defendant of the effect of the plea as required by Crim.R. 11(E). PietrykowskiLucas 3/16/2018 3/16/2018 2018-Ohio-1000
A.S. v. J.W. L-17-1099Trial court did not abuse its discretion in fashioning child support award by averaging father's commissions where the most recent year's commissions, while higher than normal, were not nonrecurring or unsustainable. Moreover, the trial court's extrapolation from the basic child support schedule contained in R.C. 3119.021 was not erroneous simply because the parties' combined gross income exceeded $150,000, where the trial court considered the best interests of the parties and the child.JensenLucas 3/16/2018 3/16/2018 2018-Ohio-1001
State v. Blom L-17-1154Appellant's untimely, successive postconviction petition was barred by res judicata. Appeal rights; Crim.R. 32; R.C. 2953.23; void; ineffective assistance of counsel.PietrykowskiLucas 3/16/2018 3/16/2018 2018-Ohio-1002
State v. Elmore WD-17-033Trial court did not err in sentencing appellant. Judgment affirmed.OsowikWood 3/16/2018 3/16/2018 2018-Ohio-1003
In re J.O. L-17-1235Juvenile court's termination of parental rights was not against the manifest weight of the evidence where the record supported the court's finding that the children could not or should not be placed with mother within a reasonable period of time and permanent custody was in the children's best interests. Children services agency was not required to make reasonable effort to prevent the removal of the child from the home where father's parental rights had previously been terminated with respect to the child's sibling.JensenLucas 3/14/2018 3/14/2018 2018-Ohio-943
State v. Allen L-17-1225The trial court did not abuse its discretion by denying appellant's petition for postconviction relief. The state properly sought a direct indictment against appellant, so the trial court had subject matter jurisdiction over appellant's case. The trial court's judgment entry is sufficient to constitute findings of fact and conclusions of law for purposes of R.C. 2953.21(D).MayleLucas 3/9/2018 3/9/2018 2018-Ohio-878
State v. Gilbert S-16-047The trial court erred in failing to advise the defendant of the residency restrictions set forth in R.C. 2950.034 before accepting his guilty plea to a sexually oriented offense. The trial court's failure to advise the defendant of the penalty renders his plea invalid and must be vacated without an analysis of the totality of the circumstances or prejudicial effect. This decision is in conflict with other appellate districts and the issue is certified to the Supreme Court. MayleSandusky 3/9/2018 3/9/2018 2018-Ohio-879
