Original Article

Diigo Post Excerpt:
{¶ 1} Defendant-Appellant, Aaron Hoffman, appeals the judgment of the Court of Common Pleas of Seneca County convicting him of sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and sentencing him to a 60-month prison term. On appeal, Hoffman argues that his conviction was against the manifest weight of the evidence. For the reasons that follow, we affirm the trial court's judgment. {¶ 2} On April 4, 2012, the Seneca County Grand Jury indicted Hoffman with sexual battery in violation of R.C. 2907.03(A)(5), (B), a felony of the third degree, and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in violation of R.C. 2907.04(A), (B)(3), also a felony of the third degree. The indictment arose from Hoffman's purported sexual relationship with A.G. from 2009 until 2011, during which time she was between 15 and 17 years old. The alleged relationship occurred while Hoffman lived with A.G. and her mother, Abby Hartsel. {¶ 3} A jury trial was held from September 24, 2012 to September 27, 2012. At trial, the following relevant evidence was adduced.
