Denial of Motion to Modify Terms of Intervention-in-Lieu-of-Conviction Cannot Be Appealed


The Supreme Court of Ohio ruled today that a Guernsey County trial court's order denying Vernon Yontz’s motion to modify the terms of his intervention-in-lieu-of-conviction (ILC) for the illegal possession of oxycodone pills was not a final appealable order.

Because the order was not final, neither the Fifth District Court of Appeals nor the Supreme Court had jurisdiction to consider the trial court’s denial of his modification request.
