State v. Woodard CA2016-09-084Appellant's convictions for possession of heroin and aggravated possession of drugs were supported by sufficient evidence and the manifest weight of the evidence where appellant admitted he handed another inmate a controlled substance, a corrections officer observed the handoff, and the baggie of drugs tested positive for heroin and fentanyl. Trial court did not err in concluding that appellant's convictions were not allied offenses of similar import as the simultaneous possession of two types of drugs constitutes two separate offenses that do not merge.HendricksonWarren 7/24/2017 7/24/2017 2017-Ohio-6941

State v. Petersen CA2016-11-074Appellant's five-year sentence for felonious assault was supported by the record and was not clearly and convincingly contrary to law where the court considered the principles and purposes of sentencing under R.C. 2929.11, as well as the seriousness and recidivism factors of R.C. 2929.12, imposed the required mandatory three-year postrelease control term, and sentenced appellant within the statutory range for a second-degree felony.HendricksonClermont 7/24/2017 7/24/2017 2017-Ohio-6940
In re J.A. CA2016-09-175Trial court did not err by finding that it was in the best interest of the child for legal custody to be granted in favor of her paternal aunt.
