Long, on two counts of possession of drugs in violation of
R.C. 2925.11, one count of having a weapon under disability
in violation of R.C. 2923.13, two counts of receiving stolen
property in violation of R.C. 2913.51, and one count of
safecracking in violation of R.C. 2911.13. Said charges arose
from a search of Long's residence pursuant to a no-knock
search warrant. Subsequently, Long was charged with one count
of aiding and abetting tampering with evidence in violation
of R.C. 2921.12. See, State v. Long, 5th Dist.
Richland No. 11CA95, 2012-Ohio-3091. [Hereinafter

On May 18, 2011, Long filed a motion to suppress, challenging
the search warrant. A hearing was held on June 17, 2011. The
trial court denied the motion. Long
On September 13, 2011, Long pled no contest to all the counts
except for one of the receiving stolen property counts, which
was dismissed. By sentencing entry filed the same date, the
trial court sentenced Long to an aggregate term of seven
years in prison. Long I, ¶ 3.
