Carter v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Claron Carter was found guilty of malice murder and other offenses related to the shooting death of Dequavious Reed. His motion for new trial was denied, and he appealed, claiming that the evidence was insufficient to support the jury’s verdicts. Although it concluded the evidence of appellant’s guilt was sufficient to support the verdicts, the Supreme Court's review of the record revealed an error in the trial court’s sentencing as to certain counts of the indictment. For that reason, the Court vacated appellant's sentences and remanded for resentencing.
