[§ 2929.19.1] § 2929.191. Correction to judgment of conviction concerning post-release control.
 

(A) (1)  If, prior to the effective date of this section, a court imposed a sentence including a prison term of a type described in division (B)(3)(c) of section 2929.19 of the Revised Code and failed to notify the offender pursuant to that division that the offender will be supervised under section 2967.28 of the Revised Code after the offender leaves prison or to include a statement to that effect in the judgment of conviction entered on the journal or in the sentence pursuant to division (F)(1) of section 2929.14 of the Revised Code, at any time before the offender is released from imprisonment under that term and at a hearing conducted in accordance with division (C) of this section, the court may prepare and issue a correction to the judgment of conviction that includes in the judgment of conviction the statement that the offender will be supervised under section 2967.28 of the Revised Code after the offender leaves prison. 

If, prior to the effective date of this section, a court imposed a sentence including a prison term of a type described in division (B)(3)(d) of section 2929.19 of the Revised Code and failed to notify the offender pursuant to that division that the offender may be supervised under section 2967.28 of the Revised Code after the offender leaves prison or to include a statement to that effect in the judgment of conviction entered on the journal or in the sentence pursuant to division (F)(2) of section 2929.14 of the Revised Code, at any time before the offender is released from imprisonment under that term and at a hearing conducted in accordance with division (C) of this section, the court may prepare and issue a correction to the judgment of conviction that includes in the judgment of conviction the statement that the offender may be supervised under section 2967.28 of the Revised Code after the offender leaves prison. 

(2) If a court prepares and issues a correction to a judgment of conviction as described in division (A)(1) of this section before the offender is released from imprisonment under the prison term the court imposed prior to the effective date of this section, the court shall place upon the journal of the court an entry nunc pro tunc to record the correction to the judgment of conviction and shall provide a copy of the entry to the offender or, if the offender is not physically present at the hearing, shall send a copy of the entry to the department of rehabilitation and correction for delivery to the offender. If the court sends a copy of the entry to the department, the department promptly shall deliver a copy of the entry to the offender. The court's placement upon the journal of the entry nunc pro tunc before the offender is released from imprisonment under the term shall be considered, and shall have the same effect, as if the court at the time of original sentencing had included the statement in the sentence and the judgment of conviction entered on the journal and had notified the offender that the offender will be so supervised regarding a sentence including a prison term of a type described in division (B)(3)(c) of section 2929.19 of the Revised Code or that the offender may be so supervised regarding a sentence including a prison term of a type described in division (B)(3)(d) of that section.

(2) If the court prepares and issues a correction to a judgment of conviction as described in division (B)(1) of this section before the offender is released from imprisonment under the term, the court shall place upon the journal of the court an entry nunc pro tunc to record the correction to the judgment of conviction and shall provide a copy of the entry to the offender or, if the offender is not physically present at the hearing, shall send a copy of the entry to the department of rehabilitation and correction for delivery to the offender. If the court sends a copy of the entry to the department, the department promptly shall deliver a copy of the entry to the offender. The court's placement upon the journal of the entry nunc pro tunc before the offender is released from imprisonment under the term shall be considered, and shall have the same effect, as if the court at the time of original sentencing had included the statement in the judgment of conviction entered on the journal and had notified the offender pursuant to division (B)(3)(e) of section 2929.19 of the Revised Code regarding the possibility of the parole board imposing a prison term for a violation of supervision or a condition of post-release control. 

(C)  On and after the effective date of this section, a court that wishes to prepare and issue a correction to a judgment of conviction of a type described in division (A)(1) or (B)(1) of this section shall not issue the correction until after the court has conducted a hearing in accordance with this division. Before a court holds a hearing pursuant to this division, the court shall provide notice of the date, time, place, and purpose of the hearing to the offender who is the subject of the hearing, the prosecuting attorney of the county, and the department of rehabilitation and correction. The offender has the right to be physically present at the hearing, except that, upon the court's own motion or the motion of the offender or the prosecuting attorney, the court may permit the offender to appear at the hearing by video conferencing equipment if available and compatible. An appearance by video conferencing equipment pursuant to this division has the same force and effect as if the offender were physically present at the hearing. At the hearing, the offender and the prosecuting attorney may make a statement as to whether the court should issue a correction to the judgment of conviction.

The provisions of § 5 of 151 v H 137 read as follows: 

SECTION 5. (A) The General Assembly hereby declares that its purpose in amending sections 2929.14, 2929.19, and 2967.28 and enacting section 2929.191 of the Revised Code in Sections 1 and 2 of this act and in amending section 2929.14 of the Revised Code in Sections 3 and 4 of this act is to reaffirm that, under the amended sections as they existed prior to the effective date of this act: (1) by operation of law and without need for any prior notification or warning, every convicted offender sentenced to a prison term for a felony of the first or second degree, for a felony sex offense, or for a felony of the third degree that is not a felony sex offense and in the commission of which the offender caused or threatened to cause physical harm to a person always is subject to a period of post-release control after the offender's release from imprisonment pursuant to and for the period of time described in division (B) of section 2967.28 of the Revised Code; (2) by operation of law, every convicted offender sentenced to a prison term for a felony of the third, fourth, or fifth degree that is not subject to the provision described in clause (1) of this sentence is subject to a period of post-release control after the offender's release from imprisonment pursuant to division (C) of section 2967.28 of the Revived Code if the parole board determines in accordance with specified criteria that post-release control is necessary; and (3) by operation of law and without need for any prior notification or warning, every convicted offender sentenced to a prison term and subjected to supervision under a period of post-release control after the offender's release from imprisonment always is subject to having the Parole Board impose in accordance with section 2967.28 of the Revised Code a prison term of up to one-half of the stated prison term originally imposed upon the offender if the offender violates that supervision or a condition of post-release control imposed under division (B) of section 2967.131 of the Revised Code. 

(B) The General Assembly hereby declares that it believes that the amendments made to sections 2929.14, 2929.19, and 2967.28 and the enactment of section 2929.191 of the Revised Code in Sections 1 and 2 of this act and the amendment made to section 2929.14 of the Revised Code in Sections 3 and 4 of this act are not substantive in nature and merely clarify that the amended sections operate as described in division (A) of this Section, that the convicted offenders described in clause (1) under division (A) of this Section always are subject by operation of law and without need for any prior notification or warning to a period of post-release control after their release from imprisonment as described in that division, that the convicted offenders described in clause (2) under division (A) of this Section are subject by operation of law to post-release control after their release from imprisonment if the Parole Board makes certain determinations, that the convicted offenders described in clause (3) under division (A) of this Section always are subject by operation of law to having the Parole Board impose a prison term if they violate their supervision or a condition of post-release control as described in that division, and that the amendments made to sections 2929.14, 2929.19, and 2967.28 and the enactment of section 2929.191 of the Revised Code in Sections 1 and 2 of this act and the amendment made to section 2929.14 of the Revised Code in Sections 3 and 4 of this act thus are remedial in nature. The General Assembly declares that it intends that the clarifying, remedial amendments made to sections 2929.14, 2929.19, and 2967.28 and the enactment of section 2929.191 of the Revised Code in Sections 1 and 2 of this act and the amendment made to section 2929.14 of the Revised Code in Sections 3 and 4 of this act apply to all convicted offenders described in division (A) of this Section, regardless of whether they were sentenced prior to, or are sentenced on or after, the effective date of this act. 

The effective date is set by § 7 of 151 v H 137.
