Brown Law Office Criminal Law News
The Ninth District Court of Appeals recently addressed an important issue that is applicable to juvenile criminal cases. In State v. Grant, 2019-Ohio-3561, the Court addressed whether the Ohio Court of Common Pleas general division judge is required to remand a criminal case involving a juvenile that was transferred to the general division pursuant to Ohio’s mandatory bindover provision back to the Ohio Court of Common Pleas Juvenile Division when the juvenile has been convicted of a lesser criminal offense that is only a discretionary bindover offense. The Ninth District answered that question in the affirmative. The Grant decision provides guidance to Ohio criminal attorneys who are representing clients in juvenile cases. A link to the decision can be found here.
