Ohio Supreme Court rules juvenile court did not have jurisdiction over 21 year old (10 30 12)

Ohio Revised Code Section 2152.02(C)(6) states that "The juvenile court has jurisdiction over a person who is adjudicated a delinquent child or juvenile traffic offender prior to attaining eighteen years of age until the person attains twenty-one years of age." J.V. was initially sentenced when he was 17 years old. He was sentenced to a blended sentence of a juvenile sentence and a stayed adult sentence. But the juvenile court did not correctly impose postrelease control on J.V. When the juvenile court tried to fix the PRC error and impose the adult portion of his blended sentence, J.V. was 21 and it was too late. The juvenile court no longer had jurisdiction over J.V. because he was no longer under the age of 21. In re J.V., Slip Opinion No. 2012-Ohio-4961.
