Crayton v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
On April 4, 2011, appellant Antwuan Crayton shot and killed Curtis Lee Mack, III. Appellant admitted to authorities and testified at trial that he shot the victim, but said he acted in self-defense. Appellant argued on appeal of his conviction that: (1) the State failed to disprove appellant’s affirmative defenses of self-defense and defense of habitation beyond a reasonable doubt; (2) the prosecutor made a misstatement of the law on felony murder predicated on possessing a firearm by a convicted felon during his opening statement; and (3) he received ineffective assistance of trial counsel. Finding no reversible error, the Supreme Court affirmed.
