Does the Law in Effect at Time of Arrest for Crack Cocaine Possession or at Time of Sentencing Determine the Appropriate Sentence?
State of Ohio v. Amber M. Limoli, Case No. 2013-0403
Tenth District Court of Appeals (Franklin County)
ISSUE: Do provisions in 2011 legislation changing Ohio's sentencing laws in part to address the disparity in sentencing for possession of crack cocaine and possession of powder cocaine require that defendants whose offenses occurred prior to the law's effective date but who were sentenced after the effective date benefit from the law's reduced sentencing for cocaine possession?
