Today, the Ohio Supreme Court granted by a 4-3 vote the motion to reconsider its decision in State v. Gonzalez (discussed here.) That was a decision last December which held that in order for a defendant to be convicted of more than a fifth degree felony charge of possessing or trafficking in cocaine, the State had to prove the pure amount of cocaine. By a 5-2 vote, the court changed its mind. Purity is no longer required.
I'll have more on that later in the week. Tomorrow I'll have the Case Update, and on Wednesday we'll take a look at the 8th District's cases.
