Johnson v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
James Johnson, Jr. appealed his convictions for malice murder and armed robbery stemming from the 1995 shooting death of Tony Rogers. Johnson argued on appeal that the evidence presented against him at trial was insufficient to support his conviction because, though he was seen with Rogers prior to his death, there was no physical evidence he killed Rogers. Further, Johnson argued the evidence was insufficient to sustain the robbery conviction because it failed to show Johnson took Rogers’ property by force. Finding the evidence sufficient as to both grounds, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed.
