The several hundred criminal cases decided by the Georgia Supreme Court and the Georgia Court of Appeals have been gleaned in an effort to present what we believe are the most interesting and informative. As we went through these cases, one thing became evident: Some relief must be given to the courts in their monumental task of hearing an increasing number of appeals and writs.

In categorizing the cases, we have used broad characterization in some instances but have headlined a very narrow point in others. In any event, the heading should point a reader in the right direction.
