Court of Appeals of Ohio, Ninth District

June 26, 2013

STATE OF OHIO Appellee
v.
WILLIAM L. WEEMS Appellant

APPEAL FROM JUDGMENT ENTERED IN THE COURT OF COMMON PLEAS COUNTY OF SUMMIT, OHIO CASE No. CR 12 01 0038 (B)

PAUL F. ADAMSON, Attorney at Law, for Appellant.

SHERRI BEVAN WALSH, Prosecuting Attorney, and RICHARD S. KASAY, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, for Appellee.

DECISION AND JOURNAL

MOORE, Presiding Judge.

{¶1} Defendant-Appellant, William Weems, appeals from the June 8, 2012 judgment entry of the Summit County Court of Common Pleas. We must affirm.

I.

{¶2} This matter stems from two robberies that occurred in January of 2012. Mr. Weems and Rayonte Jones robbed an individual at gun point in the Akron General Medical Center parking lot and used the victim's credit card to make several purchases at Chapel Hill Mall. Upon leaving the mall, Mr. Weems and Mr. Jones became involved in an altercation with two other individuals and absconded with their packages.

{¶3} The next day, Mr. Jones was apprehended by the police when he tried to return one of the stolen items to Wal-Mart. However, at that point in time, the police were unaware of Mr. Weems' identity. The record indicates that surveillance photographs were released on the internet and Mr. Weems' parents recognized their son in the photos. Mr. Weems' parents advised him to voluntarily surrender and take responsibility for his actions. Accompanied by his attorney, Mr. Weems went to the Akron Police Detective Bureau, confessed to the crimes, and agreed to truthfully testify against Mr. Jones.

{¶4} Mr. Weems was indicted on two counts of robbery, in violation of R.C. 2911.02(A)(2), felonies of the second degree, one count of aggravated robbery, in violation of R.C. 2911.01(A)(1), a felony of the first degree, receiving stolen property, in violation of R.C. 2913.51(A), a felony of the fifth degree, misuse of credit cards, in violation of R.C. 2913.21(B)(2), a misdemeanor of the first degree, and a three-year firearm specification as to the aggravated robbery, pursuant to R.C. 2941.145.

{¶5} Mr. Weems pleaded guilty to: (1) one count of robbery and (2) one count of aggravated robbery, with a one-year firearm specification. The State dismissed all of the remaining charges listed in the indictment.

{¶6} The trial court sentenced Mr. Weems to a seven-year sentence for aggravated robbery, to run consecutively with a one-year sentence for the firearm specification, to run concurrently with a four-year sentence for robbery and his previous sentence imposed in Case No. 10-10-2980, for a total of eight-years of imprisonment.

{¶7} Mr. Weems appealed, raising one assignment of error for our consideration.
