Propst v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
In December 2011, a grand jury indicted Scottie Propst on thirteen charges, including multiple counts of armed robbery, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Propst appealed his convictions and sentences, arguing among other things, the constitutionality of OCGA 16-3-24.2. Propst claimed that OCGA 16-3-24.2 violated his right to equal protection under the Georgia and United States Constitutions. Finding no error, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed.
