Brooks v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
This murder case was tried after January 1, 2013, the effective date of the new Evidence Code. The issue presented on appeal to the Georgia Supreme Court was whether the admission of "other acts" evidence to prove identity, motive and course of conduct was made in error. After review of the trial court record, the Supreme Court found the trial court erred in admitting the other acts evidence and that the error was not harmless. The Court reversed appellant’s conviction.
