Lyman v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Inee Lyman appeals his convictions and sentences for malice murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and conspiracy to commit armed robbery, all in connection with the shooting death of Christopher Lynn. Lyman argued the jury was improperly instructed, but the Georgia Supreme Court concluded he failed to establish that the omitted instruction would have affected the outcome of his trial. Furthermore, Lyman argued he received ineffective assistance of trial counsel. Finding no reason to overturn his conviction, the Supreme Court affirmed.
