Default Allied Offense Ruling

November 10, 2016
In State v. Williams, the Court ruled once a trial court determines an offender is guilty of allied offenses of similar import, Ohio law requires the sentences to be merged and allows the prosecutor to choose the offense for sentencing. If a trial court then imposes separate sentences, the sentence is void and can be challenged at any time.
