Bun v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
A jury found appellant Veasa Bun guilty of malice murder and other crimes in connection with the 2011 shooting death of Sheriff’s Deputy Richard Daly. Bun, who was seventeen years old at the time the crimes were committed, was sentenced to life without parole plus an additional seventy years of imprisonment. He appealed, arguing that his motion for new trial was denied in error, and that his sentence constituted cruel and unusual punishment under both the federal and Georgia Constitutions. Finding no reversible error, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed.
