In the decision of State v. Healy, the Ohio Supreme Court examined and interpreted the so-called larceny by trick statute. The significance of that decision in terms of consumer protection for Ohio is immense, though as yet unfelt because of a disinclination on the part of public officials and the legal community to use criminal statutes for such a purpose.
