From time to time I will share some of my recent results here on my blog. Below you’ll find results through August 31, 2015.
What have I been up to lately? After spending eight months on trial in the APS cheating case, it’s been nice to be back to business as usual.
Habeas Corpus and Re-Sentencing
RB was convicted after trial in Fulton County Superior Court in 2007 of kidnapping and multiple counts of aggravated assault and sentenced to 20 years to serve. His conviction and sentence affirmed on appeal, RB retained my former law partner Scott King and I to represent him for purposes of a petition for habeas corpus in Macon County. The habeas corpus petition was granted in part and RB was ultimately re-sentenced to 10 years to serve, the minimum allowed by law.
Juvenile Petition for Delinquency
The juvenile petition in Cobb County Juvenile Court alleging theft against JR was dismissed upon payment of restitution.
Forgery and Theft
JM was accused in Fulton County Superior Court of multiple counts of forgery and theft by taking. All charges have been dismissed upon her completion of the pretrial diversion program.
SM was convicted after trial in August-Richmond County Superior Court in 1999 of armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, terroristic threats, aggravated assault, and kidnapping. His conviction and sentence affirmed on appeal, SM retained me to represent him for purposes of a petition for habeas corpus in Coffee County Superior Court. The habeas corpus petition was granted. The Attorney General’s Office is currently appealing this ruling.
