Rankin v. Rankin CA2016-12-024Husband appeals court's decision determining his child support obligation. Trial court did not abuse its discretion in declining to hold an evidentiary hearing before ruling on husband's objections to magistrate's decision because husband did not demonstrate why he could not have supplied the magistrate with the evidence. Trial court did not err in adopting magistrate's calculation of husband's child support obligation and arrearage where magistrate's decision was based upon the limited evidence supplied by the parties.PiperBrown 9/18/2017 9/18/2017 2017-Ohio-7656
State v. Tringelof CA2017-03-015, CA2017-03-016Trial court did not err in denying appellant's post-sentence motion to withdraw his guilty plea and petition for postconviction relief where appellant received effective representation by his trial counsel and his plea was knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily made following a Crim.R. 11(C) colloquy.HendricksonClermont 9/18/2017 9/18/2017 2017-Ohio-7657
State v. Alhashimi CA2016-07-065, CA2016-07-066Trial court did not err in not merging defendant's convictions where they were not allied offenses of similar import.PiperWarren 9/18/2017 9/18/2017 2017-Ohio-7658
State v. Horne CA2016-10-071Trial court did not abuse its discretion admitting "other acts" evidence to demonstrate motive, identity, and modus operandi.M. PowellClermont 9/11/2017 9/11/2017 2017-Ohio-7539
State v. Smith CA2017-02-013Defendant's conviction for trespass in a habitation supported by sufficient evidence and not against the manifest weight of the evidence where defendant entered home through an open garage and thereafter forced her way into closed portions of the home and had to be forcibly removed. Prosecutor's description of the state's burden of proof was improper but defendant could not demonstrate plain error. Defense counsel was not ineffective for failing to call defendant to the stand.RinglandWarren 9/11/2017 9/11/2017 2017-Ohio-7540
In re M.E.K. CA2016-12-241The juvenile court's decision was not erroneous because the child's best interest was to stay in her foster placement until she reaches the age of majority where she and her father have a volatile relationship and the child is doing well in her placement.PiperButler 9/11/2017 9/11/2017 2017-Ohio-7543
Warman v. Warman CA2016-08-170Trial court did not err in its decision regarding parenting time or in its decision regarding the division of marital property and debt allocation.RinglandButler 9/5/2017 9/6/2017 2017-Ohio-7462
Smith v. Smith CA2016-08-059Trial court erred by finding Husband committed financial misconduct where his uninsured business caught on fire and he was forced to take out loans to rebuild. Though Husband exercised poor judgment in his failure to maintain liability insurance on the premises, there is no evidence that Husband engaged in wrongdoing or intentionally defeated marital assets.RinglandClermont 9/5/2017 9/6/2017 2017-Ohio-7463
State v. Gerde CA2016-11-077The trial court did not err by admitting a recording of jailhouse phone calls between appellant and his mother as such statements constituted non-hearsay admissions of a party opponent as provided by Evid.R. 801(D)(2) that were not unfairly prejudicial to appellant. In addition, appellant's conviction for burglary was supported by sufficient evidence and otherwise not against the manifest weight of the evidence where there was evidence he burglarized a home, which constituted an occupied structure, with a co-defendant who implicated him in the crime.S. PowellClermont 9/5/2017 9/6/2017 2017-Ohio-7464
State v. Penwell CA2016-12-020, CA2016-12-021Defendant's convictions for breaking and entering and theft for breaking into a car owned by an individual and stealing a credit card found in the car and belonging to another individual were not allied offenses of similar import because the offenses involved separate victims and each victim suffered a separate and identifiable harm. Defendant was properly convicted of fourth-degree felony grand theft of a motor vehicle for stealing an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) because the ATV falls within the definition of a motor vehicle under R.C. 2913.01(FF) and 4501.01(B).M.
