Hooks v. Sheets, 08-4549

In habeas proceedings, imposition of the same sentence upon a defendant following a remand for re-sentencing in light of State v. Foster, 845 N.E.2d 470 (Ohio 2006), is affirmed as, since defendant was always subject to consecutive rather than concurrent sentences in the discretion of the trial court, his re-sentencing under Foster did not raise ex post facto or due process concerns.
