WRIGHT v. THE STATE.
A94A2456.
MCMURRAY, Presiding Judge.
Rape, etc. Catoosa Superior Court. Before Judge Tucker.
Defendant was tried before a jury and found guilty of incest, rape and aggravated sodomy. This appeal followed the denial of defendant's motion for new trial. Held:
1. Defendant first contends the trial court erred in admitting incriminating statements he uttered in the presence of a law enforcement officer after he refused the officer's requests for defendant to execute a form indicating waiver of his rights under Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U. S. 436 (86 SC 1602, 16 LE2d 694). This enumeration provides no grounds for reversal as any error in admission of these statements was not only cumulative of other admissible evidence, it is harmless because of overwhelming evidence of defendant's guilt. McLendon v. State, 259 Ga. 778, 780 (4) (387 SE2d 133).
Ralph L. Van Pelt, Jr., District Attorney, Melodie S. Bedford, Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
Ernest C. Tubbs, Jr., for appellant.
DECIDED MARCH 6, 1995.
