Sandusky/Prosecution say Clinton has no grounds for appeal

Prosecutors have issued a memo that opposes an accused convicted killer’s motion to reconsider the denial of his appeal.

According to the Sandusky Register, the prosecution is arguing that 46-year-old Curtis Clinton doesn’t provide grounds for reconsideration; and that he repeats the same arguments that have already been addressed and rejected.

The Ohio Supreme Court reaffirmed the conviction and death sentence earlier this month of Clinton for the rape and murder of Heather Jackson and her children in 2012.

Clinton is arguing that the court erred when it joined two separate cases together against him and included a past conviction as evidence.

Police were also out in full force at both Sandusky and Perkins schools on Thursday due to other separate social media threats, with no incidents reported.
