State of Ohio v. Austin M. Fuell, Case No. 2021-0794
Twelfth District Court of Appeals (Clermont County)
- When a juvenile court considers whether there is probable cause of a crime that would result in the mandatory transfer of the case to adult criminal court, does the juvenile have a constitutional right to cross-examine witnesses who make hearsay statements?
- Is a mandatory sentence of 15 years to life for murder unconstitutional as applied to juvenile offenders because it doesn't allow the court to consider youth when sentencing the offender?
