Serna Case Update

The Ohio Supreme Court reverses course and decides not to hear an appeal by a convicted school shooter. The court dismissed Ely Serna’s case in an opinion that listed it as improvidently accepted, without further explanation. Serna was sentenced to more than 23 years in prison for a 2017 shooting that critically wounded another teen at a high school in West Liberty. Serna was 17 at the time of the shooting. His lawyers argued that his age should have been taken into account in his sentencing for charges that included attempted murder. A state appeals court concluded the judge acted properly in his sentencing.
