Highland Co. men to challenge Ohio RICO law

COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) -

Two Highland County men convicted of selling drugs will ask the Ohio Supreme Court next week to determine whether their drug sales of less than $500 each meet the definition of "corrupt activity" in Ohio's Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute.

The men were tried together, but their attorneys are scheduled to argue separately for their clients in back-to-back oral arguments before the court on Tuesday, September 10.

The central issue asserted in the cases is whether the profits made by an individual in a criminal enterprise or by the enterprise as a whole are to be used when calculating whether an individual has engaged in corrupt activity under Ohio law.

These two cases, State of Ohio v. Jeffrey Stevens and State of Ohio v. Zachary Bondurant, will be heard by the court with three others on Tuesday at the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center in Columbus.

The court will hear oral arguments in three more cases on Wednesday, September 11.
