State of Ohio v. Adam R. Cupp, Case Nos. 2017-1547 and 2017-1701
Eleventh District Court of Appeals (Geauga County)
ISSUE: Is a defendant entitled to jail credit for pre-sentence time held in detention on bond if, during the same period, the defendant is serving a jail sentence on a separate case?
In June 2015, the state filed charges in municipal court against Adam R. Cupp for one count of rape. Cupp posted a bail bond a few days later, and the case was transferred to the Geauga County Common Pleas Court. On June 29, the grand jury indicted Cupp on counts of rape, kidnapping, endangering children, and gross sexual imposition.
