As used in this section, "incompetent person" means a person who is so mentally impaired, as a result of a mental or physical illness or disability, as a result of an intellectual disability, or as a result of chronic substance abuse, that the person is incapable of taking proper care of the person's self or property or fails to provide for the person's family or other persons for whom the person is charged by law to provide.
The property, both real and personal, of a defendant against whom a judgment is rendered under sections 3763.01 to 3763.08 of the Revised Code, for fines, costs, or to recover money or any other thing of value, lost or paid, shall be liable therefor without exemption, and such judgment shall be a lien thereon until paid. If the owner of the building in which the money was lost knowingly permits it to be used for gaming purposes, such building, and the real estate upon which it stands, shall be liable therefor in a like manner. The guardian or trustee of a minor or incompetent person, permitting property under the guardian's or trustee's charge to be used for gaming purposes and to become liable on account thereof, shall be liable to the guardian's or trustee's ward for such amount.
