State v. Halka WD-19-061Judgment affirmed as to drug offenses, but reversed and vacated as to conviction for engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, as generalized testimony of the existence of drug cartels and past investigations of cartel activity does not establish the existence of an enterprise with a solo drug dealer in a particular case, lacking any evidence linking the defendant to the cartel.OsowikWood 1/22/2021 1/22/2021 2021-Ohio-149
State v. Smith WD-19-082Trial court decision to impose consecutive sentences affirmed because the trial court made the required findings under R.C. 2929.14(C)(4) at the sentencing hearing and in its judgment entry, and the record supports the trial court’s findings.MayleWood 1/22/2021 1/22/2021 2021-Ohio-150
State v. Mitten S-19-056Sentence supported by clear and convincing evidence; guilty plea was knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily made; denial of motion to withdraw plea was not an abuse of discretion.SingerSandusky 1/15/2021 1/15/2021 2021-Ohio-89
State v. Baldwin WD-18-064Trial court abused its discretion in admitting evidence that defendant’s brother threatened witness where defendant was not shown to have been involved in those threats and threats were not offered for proper purpose such as to explain why a witness’s story changed or why a witness did not immediately come forward to police. Reversal was required because state failed to show that admission of improper evidence did not affect defendant’s substantial rights.MayleWood 1/15/2021 1/15/2021 2021-Ohio-84
Davis v. Johnson L-19-1268Action properly commenced against appellant where his first name was incorrectly stated in the caption of the complaint, but the body of the complaint and all subsequent filings used his correct name. Service by ordinary mail proper where sent to correct address with correct surname and not returned.

State v. Hearn E-19-067, E-19-076, E-19-077, E-19-078Where court imposed consecutive sentences in multiple judgment entries and applied full amount of jail-time credit in one judgment entry and zero days credit in second judgment entry, concern that error could occur should the first sentence someday be declared void raises only a potential controversy. Judgments currently and correctly reflect single reduction to aggregate sentence. Appellant fails to explain how jail-time credit was miscalculated and error is not evident from the record.MayleErie 1/15/2021 1/15/2021 2021-Ohio-86
