PRICE v. THE STATE.
S89A0385.
HUNT, Justice.
Murder, etc. Fulton Superior Court. Before Judge Hicks.
The transcript of the guilty plea reveals the defendant's concern with this issue at the time of the plea. However, not only his own attorney, but also the trial court explained the difference to him and both times he indicated on the record that he understood this distinction.
Since the record clearly indicates the defendant knew and understood the charges against him and the consequences of pleading guilty, we must affirm. Goodman v. Davis, 249 Ga. 11, 16-17 (287 SE2d 26) (1982); State v. Germany, 245 Ga. 326, 328 (265 SE2d 13) (1980).
