Another Sentencing Case Decided by the Supreme Court of Ohio

In another decision handed down today, the court's syllabus stated,
"When findings under R.C. 2929.13(D) or 2929.20(H) are missing
from the appellate record, the appellate court shall remand the case
to the sentencing court to state on the record the required findings
pursuant to R.C. 2953.08(G)(1), after which the appellate court shall
either affirm or modify the sentence, or vacate the sentence and
remand the case for a hearing de novo if the sentence is contrary to
law. (R.C. 2953.08(G) and 2929.19, construed.)
