Banishment was not permitted under Ohio law (2 25 2013)

A Medina County woman decided to have an affair with a man from Florida. Then she decided to end the affair in March of 2009. The dejected lover then devised a plan to come to Ohio, kill his former lover who was cheating on her husband, and leave a bag of sentimental items for her husband to find. His plan was foiled when police were tipped off. As part of his sentence for attempted murder and attempted aggravated burglary, the trial court banished the man from Ohio for life. The Court of Appeals for Medina County vacated the banishment provision since there is no authority for the trial court to banish someone. State v. Mose, 2013-Ohio-635.
