Aalim (Slip Opinion) 2015-0677Juvenile procedure-Due process-Equal protection-Mandatory transfer of juveniles to general division of common pleas court does not violate juveniles' rights to due process or equal protection under Article I, Sections 2 and 16 of Ohio Constitution or Fourteenth Amendment to United States Constitution-Due-process provisions of both constitutions predate creation of juvenile courts and therefore cannot have created substantive right to amenability hearing-Appellant's mandatory transfer satisfied fundamental fairness because juvenile court issued decision stating its reasons for transfer after conducting hearing at which appellant was represented by counsel-Juveniles are not a suspect class under either federal or Ohio's Equal Protection Clause-Mandatory transfer is rationally related to legitimate governmental purpose of increased punishments for serious juvenile offenders-Motion for reconsideration granted and court of appeals' judgment upholding trial court's denial of appellant's motion to dismiss his indictment affirmed.Kennedy, J.Slip Opinion No. 2017-Ohio-2956
