Brown Law Office Criminal Defense News

The Supreme Court of Ohio recently held that in calculating the weight of a drug to determine the degree of felony, “filler” substances are included in the weight of the controlled substance.  In State v. Gonzales, 2017-Ohio-777, the Court held that any filler substances are included in calculating the weight of the controlled substance for purposes of Ohio Revised Code 2925.11(C)(4)(b) through (f).  This decision has major implications for criminal attorneys who are defending drug possession and trafficking cases in Ohio.  A link to the decision can be found here.
