Municipal Rule 14

Local Rule 14 CONCURRENT SUPERVISION WITH THE HAMILTON COUNTY COURT OF COMMON PLEAS

(Effective 10/3/2016)

For individuals placed on reporting community control in both the Hamilton County Municipal Court and the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas, the probation departments of both courts shall supervise the individual unless, by agreement of the sentencing Judges of each court, a determination is made that the resources can be conserved by having one probation officer supervise the offender's compliance with the sentences imposed by both courts. If the Common Pleas and Municipal Court Probation Department agree that only one department should supervise the offender, and further agree on which department should provide said supervision, then their joint recommendation shall be presented to the original sentencing Judges in both Common Pleas and Municipal Court. If, upon consideration of the factors set forth in R.C. 2951.022(C), both judges agree with the recommendation of the Probation Departments to consolidate supervision, said supervision shall be consolidated per the agreement and this fact journalized by an Entry. If, upon consideration of the factors set forth in R.C. 2951.022(C), either sentencing judge objects to the consolidation of supervision, the consolidation shall not occur, and the offender shall be supervised by the probation departments. Individuals placed on court monitored, non-reporting community control in Hamilton County Municipal Court shall remain subject to the Hamilton County Municipal Court's monitoring of compliance with the sanctions imposed. No offender placed on court monitored, non-reporting community control in Municipal Court shall have their supervision transferred to the Common Pleas Adult Probation Program.
