Favors v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Michael Favors was convicted of murder, burglary, aggravated assault on a peace officer, and other related offenses in connection with the December 2003 shooting death of Theodore Barber. Favors appealed, contending the trial court erred in admitting certain witness testimony and in sentencing him on certain counts, and claiming that his trial counsel rendered constitutionally ineffective assistance. The Georgia Supreme Court, after review, found no error in the verdicts and no ineffective assistance on the part of trial counsel. However, the Court concluded the trial court erred in merging some offenses. That portion of the trial court's judgment was vacated, and the case remanded for proper merger and resentencing.
