Castillo-Velazquez v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Saul Castillo-Velasquez appealed his convictions for malice murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime stemming from the 2013 shooting death of Silverio Acosta. On appeal, Castillo-Velasquez contended the trial court erred by admitting other-act evidence under OCGA 24-4-404 (b) and by admitting Acosta’s bloody clothes into evidence. He also claimed he received ineffective assistance of counsel. The Georgia Supreme Court concluded his claims had no merit and affirmed.
