State v. Jennings
Ohio Court of Appeals
2002 Ohio 7266 (2002)
Late one evening, Melody Kay drove to her boyfriend’s place of employment to pick him up. Kay left her vehicle unlocked with her purse, which contained a Citi Bank credit card, a Bank One money card, and other items, inside the car. Five minutes later, Kay returned to her car to find her purse missing. James Jennings (defendant) and two other men were seen running from the area into the woods and were later apprehended by police officers. The police officers found Kay’s Citi Bank credit card and Bank One money card at Jennings’s feet. The State of Ohio (plaintiff) charged Jennings with receiving stolen property. After a trial, a jury convicted Jennings, and he appealed, arguing that the state failed to prove that Jennings had possession of Kay’s credit and money cards. Jennings also argued that a money card was not the same as a credit card under state law.
