State v. Zimmerer CA2019-10-176Appellant's conviction for voyeurism was supported by sufficient evidence where the victim testified that she looked over her shoulder and saw appellant's arm outstretched behind her body holding his phone, which was in camera mode, displaying on its screen the edge of her dress, her legs, and the back of her thigh, which would have been covered by her dress while appellant was at the victim's home to service her air conditioner. The trial court did not err by admitting evidence that appellant had photographed a woman's backside while she was climbing her basement steps while appellant was on a service call at the woman's house as that evidence was admissible to show an absence of mistake or accident where appellant claimed it was an accident that his phone's forward-facing camera was turned on and pointed up the victim's skirt.S.

Coomes v. Coomes CA2019-10-076The trial court did not abuse its discretion in awarding attorney fees pursuant to R.C. 3105.73(B) where the award was equitable given husband's conduct throughout the litigation as well as husband's ability to pay. RinglandClermont 7/27/2020 7/27/2020 2020-Ohio-3839
State v. Kaufhold CA2019-09-148The trial court did not err by denying appellant's motion for acquittal where the state presented sufficient evidence to support appellant's conviction for rape and sexual battery indicating appellant either knew or had reasonable cause to believe the victim's ability to resist or consent was substantially impaired as a result of the victim becoming intoxicated by drugs and/or alcohol prior to them having sex. Moreover, the state did not engage in prosecutorial misconduct as alleged by appellant where the state did not fabricate evidence during its closing argument, but instead merely reiterated the trial testimony offered to the jury. The state also did not engage in prosecutorial misconduct by misstating the evidence and misleading the jury as appellant alleged. Additionally, appellant's claims alleging he received ineffective assistance of trial counsel lack merit where the conduct appellant complained of was either a part of his trial counsel's trial strategy and/or was not prejudicial in that it did not impact the outcome of the case given the extensive evidence proving appellant's guilt. Finally, the trial court did not err by sentencing appellant to a mandatory prison term given the fact that any sentence imposed for any rape, regardless of whether force was involved and regardless of the age of the victim, is mandatory by operation of law.S. PowellButler 7/27/2020 7/27/2020 2020-Ohio-3835
State v. Tillett CA2019-11-192The trial court did not err in imposing concurrent 60-month prison sentences on both of appellant's convictions for third-degree gross sexual imposition as the court properly considered the principles and purposes of felony sentencing under R.C. 2929.11 and the seriousness and recidivism factors of R.C. 2929.12. Appellant's sentence is not contrary to law and is supported by the record as there were multiple offenses that occurred over an extended period of time, the victim was a young child, appellant held position of trust as the victim's grandfather, and the victim suffered psychological harm as a result of appellant's actions.
