I, Sec. 1, 10, and 16, Ohio Const.: Amend. V and XIV, U.S. Const.; State v. Pittman, 150 Ohio St.3d 113, 2016-Ohio-8314, 79 N.E.3d 531; State v. Hubbard, 11th Dist. No. 2017-P-0042, 2018-Ohio-3627).

2/4/2020 Proposition of Law No. I: A child’s age and age-attendant characteristics are relevant sentencing factors and must be considered before a young person is sentenced to prison.

This Court’s guidance is again needed to ensure that age is relevant to all sentencings.
