State of Ohio v. Michael Smith, Case No. 2018-1831
First District Court of Appeals (Hamilton County)
- Should evidence of prior acts that led to criminal charges but resulted in acquittal be barred from consideration in a subsequent criminal case?
- Does the admission of evidence of a 30-year-old acquittal for which the transcripts and complete record are unavailable violate the test described in the Ohio Supreme Court's decision in State v. Williams (2012)?
