McDaniel v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
McDaniel appealed the denial of numerous post-judgment motions he filed since 2009. He originally pled guilty to felony murder in 2002 and was sentenced to life in prison. The issues common to all these motions involve ineffective assistance of counsel, defective indictment, void sentence and conviction, involuntary plea, and general infringement by the trial court of his constitutional rights. In 2017, the trial court entered a two-paragraph order denying all outstanding motions filed between October 2009 and April 2017. Finding that the trial court properly denied McDaniel's motions, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed.
