Do County Prosecutors, Not Probation Officers, Represent the State in Community Control Violation Hearings?
State of Ohio v. Delta Rosario, Case No. 2014-1174
Eighth District Court of Appeals (Cuyahoga County)
- Is a county prosecutor a party to a community control sanctions violation or revocation hearing and entitled to be heard at those hearings?
- Is requiring non-lawyer probation officers to be the state's representatives at these hearings a violation of the doctrine of separation of powers?
