Thanks! Georgia Caselaw
WYATT, Presiding Justice.
Murder; appellate procedure. Before Judge Davis. Dade Superior Court. March 8, 1957.
Before a decision had been rendered, proper notice and affidavits were filed in this court, averring that the defendant had escaped from jail and was a fugitive from justice. This court issued an order directing the defendant to furnish evidence of his surrender or recapture by June 20, 1957. No such evidence has been furnished this court. Held:
Notice of the escape from custody of the defendant, who was convicted of murder, having been brought to this court by affidavit of the proper officer, and the defendant having made no response to the order of this court to furnish evidence of his surrender or recapture, so as to insure submission to the judgment of this court when rendered, the writ of error is dismissed. Gentry v. State, 91 Ga. 669 (17 S. E. 956).
DUCKWORTH, Chief Justice, concurring specially. I concur specially solely because I am bound by the decision cited and other decisions to the same effect, all of which I consider unsound and favor overruling.
Earl B. Self, Solicitor-General, C. T. Culbert, Assistant Solicitor-General, Eugene Cook, Attorney-General, Rubye G. Jackson, contra.
Graham Glover, Bert Garstin, for plaintiff in error.
SUBMITTED JUNE 10, 1957 -- DECIDED JULY 3, 1957.
