Introduction

This site is an expansion of the Criminal Law Casebook, Second Edition, originally written by Alan V. Adair and published by the Franklin County Public Defender in 2000. It is an ongoing project, intended to be an up-to-date resource for Ohio criminal defense attorneys.
 
The index to the site is now hyperlinked to provide quicker access to the material. Citations to recent cases are also hyperlinked to provide immediate access to the cases themselves. Where possible, the site includes hyperlinks to appellate briefs filed in recent cases.
 
We encourage contributions from the Ohio criminal defense bar. Please forward recent decisions in your cases to tepierce@franklincountyohio.gov.
