State v. Dangler (Slip Opinion) 2017-1703Criminal law—Crim.R. 11(C)(2)(a)—A trial court must explain to a defendant the “maximum penalty involved” when accepting a plea of guilty or no contest—When a trial court explained to a defendant sex offender who entered a plea of guilty or no contest that he is subject to the sex-offender-registration scheme of R.C. Chapter 2950 as part of his penalty, the defendant is entitled to have his conviction vacated for lack of a more complete explanation only if he demonstrates prejudice.DeWine, J.Slip Opinion No. 2020-Ohio-2765
State ex rel. Parker Bey v. Byrd (Slip Opinion) 2019-0547Mandamus—Public-records requests—Court of appeals erred in denying complaint on grounds that it did not invoke Sup.R. 44 through 47 as basis for request for court records—Generally, it is not necessary to cite a particular rule or statute in support of a public-records request until requester attempts to satisfy more demanding standard applicable when seeking writ of mandamus to compel compliance with request—State ex rel. Husband v. Shanahan overruled to extent it conflicts with this decision—Unlike case documents, administrative documents are subject to Sup.R. 44 through 47 regardless of when created—Judgment affirmed in part and reversed in part, and cause remanded for court of appeals to apply Public Records Act, R.C. 149.43, to determine whether requester is entitled to writ of mandamus to compel clerk of courts to produce requested journal entries and whether requester is entitled to statutory damages and court costs.O'Connor, C.J.Slip Opinion No. 2020-Ohio-2766
