The Ohio Supreme Court ruled in favor of the following:
Writs of mandamus sought to compel clerks of courts and judges to accept surety
bonds in all cases where bail is set by the court.
Crim.R. 46(A) is unconstitutional
insofar as it allows a court to require a bond secured by a 10 percent cash deposit
under Crim.R. 46(A)(2)
Bail may be set under Crim.R. 46(A)(2), so long
as a surety bond is accepted as an alternative.
