Can Sentence for Community Control Violation Run Consecutively to New Prison Sentence?
State of Ohio v. Brooke Jones, Case No. 2020-0485 and 2020-0826
Seventh District Court of Appeals (Harrison County)
If a reserved prison sentence is imposed for a future community-control violation, must the original sentencing court provide notice to the defendant that the sentence could run consecutively to any additional prison sentence?
Does a trial court have the authority to impose a prison sentence for a community-control violation to run consecutively to any additional prison sentence imposed by a second sentencing court for a new crime?
Does a second sentencing court have sole authority to impose a reserved prison sentence for a community-control violation to run consecutively to the second sentencing court's new prison sentence?
