DuBose v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Courtney DuBose was tried by jury and convicted of felony murder, aggravated assault, and the unlawful possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, all in connection with the shooting death of Atima Smith. In Case No. S16A1299, DuBose appealed his conviction and sentence, contending that the trial court erred when it sentenced him for felony murder rather than voluntary manslaughter, when it sentenced him separately for felony murder and aggravated assault, and when it charged the jury on voluntary manslaughter. The Supreme Court concluded those contentions lacked merit, and affirmed. In Case No. S16A1300, DuBose appealed a trial court order clarified his sentence, but he failed to assert any claim of error as to that order. Accordingly, the Court dismissed that case.
