Georgia v. Brown

File Stamped Petition for Writ of Certiorari


This is a Petition for Writ of Certiorari filed on behalf of my client. For those who wonder how a lawyer can defend the obviously guilty, this provides an answer. Darrell Brown received the best defense available under the facts of this case. The issue of facts found by a jury under a recividist sentencing scheme was a question of first impression under state law in Georgia. The federal question was an attempt to get the Supreme Court to hold recidivism was a fact to be found solely by the jury in a state court proceeding. The answer had been decided adversely under Federal law, yet the evolving case law left room to ask the Court to review a prior holding. However, the Court did not grant the petition.
