State v. Group

Ohio Supreme Court
98 Ohio St. 3d 248 (2002)

  • Written by Sharon Feldman, JD

Facts

Scott Group (defendant) was in prison while awaiting trial on charges of shooting Sandra Lozier and killing her husband during a robbery. Lozier was going to testify against Group. Adam Perry was incarcerated with Group and also awaiting trial on pending charges. Both before and after Perry was released on bond, Group offered Perry $150,000 to firebomb Lozier’s house to scare Lozier into not testifying against Group or lead the police to investigate others. Group gave Perry Lozier’s address and instructions on how to make a firebomb. Group assured Perry that the house was vacant. Perry went to Lozier’s house, found Lozier at home, and decided not to firebomb her house. Perry told the prosecutor (plaintiff) about the firebombing plan. A superseding indictment was filed against Group adding a count charging attempted aggravated murder of Lozier and a count charging intimidating a witness. Group was convicted on all counts. On appeal, Group argued, in part, that the evidence was insufficient to prove attempted aggravated murder.
