Freeman v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Lamar Freeman was convicted of felony murder and other related crimes based upon a guilty plea entered in 1995. The criminal charges against appellant included a charge of malice murder and other crimes related to the rape and shooting death of Alicia Lynn Yarbrough. At the time of the crimes, appellant was fifteen years of age. In 1995, at the age of sixteen, appellant entered a plea of guilty to felony murder, armed robbery, and burglary, and he was sentenced to two life sentences to be served concurrently, plus twenty years. Appellant challenged the trial court’s denial of his motion for leave to file an out-of-time appeal. Finding no reversible error, however, the Supreme Court affirmed.
