Johnson v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Paul Johnson was tried by jury and convicted of murder and other crimes, all in connection with the 2004 killing of Craig Porter. Johnson appealed, arguing that the evidence was insufficient to sustain his convictions, that the trial court erred when it admitted certain testimony from the medical
examiner, that the trial court erred when it admitted evidence of a photographic lineup that (Johnson said) was unduly suggestive, and that he was denied the effective assistance of counsel. Upon review of the record and briefs, the Supreme Court found no error, and affirmed.
