Are Mandatory Prison Sentences Constitutional for Gross Sexual Imposition Conviction that Included Corroborating Evidence?
Damon L. Bevly v. State of Ohio, Case no. 2013-0821
Tenth District Court of Appeals (Franklin County)
Does the statute imposing a mandatory prison sentence for gross sexual imposition when there is corroborating evidence treat cases with corroborating evidence differently than those without, and therefore violate due process constitutional protections?
Does the statute deny the right to a trial by jury guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution?
