About The Committee

The Ohio Criminal Justice Recodification Committee was created by the 130th Ohio General Assembly to study the state's existing criminal statutes, with the goal of enhancing public safety and the administration of criminal justice throughout the state of Ohio. The Committee will accomplish its mission by recommending a plan for a simplified criminal code that makes efficient use of resources through flexible yet consistent statewide policies.

The Committee must present a comprehensive plan for revising Ohio's Criminal Code to the state General Assembly by August 1, 2016.
