State v. Wallace CA2017-09-011; CA2017-11-014 The trial court did not err in admitting into evidence recorded interviews the victims made to appellant's trial counsel, as the recordings were relevant and necessary to explain the events surrounding the victims' recantations. Admission of the evidence did not violate appellant's constitutional rights under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution or Section 10, Article I of the Ohio Constitution or his rights under Crim.R. 16. Furthermore, appellant's claim of ineffective assistance of counsel was without merit where appellant failed to show that certain jurors were actually biased against him or were in need of being rehabilitated before being seated on the juryHendricksonBrown 2/11/2019 2/11/2019 2019-Ohio-442

State v. Black CA2018-04-072The trial court did not err in classifying appellant a sexual predator under Megan's law where the state presented clear and convincing evidence that appellant had been convicted of committing a sexually-oriented offense and is likely to engage in the future in one or more sexually oriented offenses.HendricksonButler 2/11/2019 2/11/2019 2019-Ohio-444
In re Estate of Brate CA2017-09-133An executrix appeals from the probate court's decision finding her transfer of estate property fraudulent. Competent and credible evidence supported the probate court's finding that the executrix intended to fraudulently convey the estate property to settle a personal debt.

The matter was remanded for appointment of a successor fiduciary.RinglandWarren 2/11/2019 2/11/2019 2019-Ohio-446

In re Guardianship of Bernie CA2018-01-005The probate court made proper findings of facts and conclusions of law where this court was able to make a meaningful review of the court's decision. The probate court properly considered the superintendence rules as aiding its analysis of the issues, but the rules do not carry the force of law or provide a means for reversal on appealPiperButler 2/4/2019 2/4/2019 2019-Ohio-334
In re C.I.R. CA2018-06-123The juvenile court erred by adjudicating appellant a delinquent child for having committed an act that if charged as an adult would constitute inducing panic as a second-degree felony rather than as a first-degree misdemeanor where the state provided no evidence that appellant's threat caused the evacuation of any school or institution of higher education.

SAFA, Inc. v. Reliable Credit Assn., Inc. CA2018-08-157The trial court did not err by granting appellees' motion to dismiss appellant's complaint pursuant to Civ.R. 12(B)(6) upon finding appellant's claims alleging fraud and wrongful execution was an impermissible collateral attack on a foreign judgment initiated through a separate lawsuit rather than through proceedings regarding the domestication of the foreign judgment.

State v. McCrone CA2018-01-007A defendant appeals from his convictions for multiple burglary and attempted burglary offenses.

State v. Wilson CA2018-03-022Voluntary manslaughter jury instruction that begins with "the defendant claims that at the time of the offense" did not identify the defendant as the party who requested the instruction and did not indicate in any respect that the instruction was requested by the defendant. Lead detective's testimony as to whether the defendant was truthful and made sense during his interview did not relate to the defendant's truthfulness but to whether the defendant's statements were consistent with the evidence uncovered by the police investigation. The trial court did not err in not merging the offenses of murder and improperly discharging a firearm into a habitation at sentencing where the offenses involved separate victims, and each offense caused a "separate, identifiable harm."M. PowellWarren 2/4/2019 2/4/2019 2019-Ohio-338
