    Ah, I missed the guilty plea. Does make appeals much less likely.

    Ummm...you do realize that each state makes their own rules right? Just because one state will execute minors doesn't mean Ohio does (anymore).;

    2929.04 Death penalty or imprisonment - aggravating and mitigating factors.
    If one or more of the aggravating circumstances listed in division (A) of this section is specified in the indictment or count in the indictment and proved beyond a reasonable doubt, and if the offender did not raise the matter of age pursuant to section 2929.023 of the Revised Code or if the offender, after raising the matter of age, was found at trial to have been eighteen years of age or older at the time of the commission of the offense, the court, trial jury, or panel of three judges shall consider, and weigh against the aggravating circumstances proved beyond a reasonable doubt, the nature and circumstances of the offense, the history, character, and background of the offender, and all of the following factors:
