Cisneros v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
In 2004, appellant Gustavo Cisneros was indicted, along with eight others, for crimes related to a series of home invasions in Gwinnett County. In 2008, following a separate jury trial at which two of his co-indictees testified, appellant was found guilty of six counts of armed robbery, eight counts of burglary, two counts of criminal attempt to commit armed robbery, two counts of aggravated sexual battery, and one count of sexual battery. His convictions were affirmed in part and reversed in part on appeal to the Court of Appeals. He raised a number of issues on appeal, primarily challenging the sufficiency of the evidence presented against him at trial and that the Court of Appeals erred in the conclusions it drew in its judgment of conviction. Finding none of these arguments availing, the Supreme Court affirmed appellant's convictions.
