State v. Bryant L-17-1211Statements by prosecutor at sentencing that multiple officers raided the house and were yelling at the time that appellant fired several shots in their direction were sufficient to support the trial court’s conclusion that there were multiple victims of appellant’s act of felonious assault, and thus the two counts should not merge.PietrykowskiLucas 12/7/2018 12/7/2018 2018-Ohio-4910
In re L.S. OT-17-021; OT-17-025R.C. 2907.02(A)(1)(c) is not unconstitutionally vague as applied. State presented sufficient evidence that juvenile knew or should have known that victim’s ability to resist or consent to sexual conduct was substantially impaired by voluntary intoxication. Counsel was not ineffective for stipulating to the admission of BCI reports and failing to object to purported hearsay statements. Juvenile court was required to comply with Juv.R. 29 and 35(B) when it imposed suspended DYS commitment.MayleOttawa 11/30/2018 11/30/2018 2018-Ohio-4758

State v. Patterson WD-17-045; WD-17-046Trial counsel was not so ineffective as to deprive appellant of meaningful representation because no error in the record resulted in prejudice or precluded appellant from entering a knowing, voluntary plea. R.C. 2941.401 time limits were not violated. SingerWood 11/20/2018 11/20/2018 2018-Ohio-4672
