RIGGS v. THE STATE.
73560.
MCMURRAY, Presiding Judge.
Burglary. Richmond Superior Court. Before Judge Pierce.
Defendant was tried and convicted of burglary. He appeals, asserting the trial court erred in refusing to exclude scientific (fingerprint) evidence in accordance with OCGA 17-7-211. Held:
In order to make a valid discovery request under OCGA 17-7-211, the request must either refer to that Code section or request that the scientific report be produced 10 days prior to trial. Lariscey v. State, 254 Ga. 241, 242 (1) (328 SE2d 213); State v. Meminger, 249 Ga. 561, 562 (1) (292 SE2d 681). Defendant has failed to demonstrate that he made a valid discovery request pursuant to OCGA 17-7-211. Accordingly, his enumeration of error must be deemed to be without merit.
Sam B. Sibley, Jr., District Attorney, Charles R. Sheppard, Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
Benjamin Allen, for appellant.
DECIDED DECEMBER 3, 1986.
