State of Ohio v. Gregory S. Straley, Case No. 2018-1176
Fourth District Court of Appeals (Highland County)
- When a plea and a sentence are agreed to, is the defendant permitted to withdraw a guilty plea when the court told the defendant that no sentences were mandatory and it was later determined that certain offenses carried mandatory sentences?
- Is the correct remedy for an improper sentence in these circumstances to remand the case for resentencing rather than to allow the withdrawal of the defendant's guilty plea?
