The Ohio Sentencing Commission has issued its summary & analysis of recently passed HB 86, going into effect on Sept. 1, 2011. Amended Substitute House Bill 86, sponsored by Reps. Lynn Slaby and Tracy Heard, contains the most significant amendments to criminal and prison law since S.B. 2 took effect in 1996. Proposed S.B. 22, sponsored by Sen. Bill Seitz last session, laid the foundation for many of the changes. H.B. 86 also makes noteworthy changes in juvenile law.
