Defendant appeals his three convictions of cruelty to children, OCGA 16-5-70
1. One of the counts of cruelty was that defendant used scalding water to cause burns to the body of a named child, who was then eight months old. When the State sought to introduce 12 photographs depicting injuries suffered by the child defendant objected on the grounds that the pictures were repetitive because there had already been evidence from the presence of the child in court and testimony as to the injuries the child suffered by the doctor who treated the victim. The State argued that the photographs, six of which were taken when the victim was first brought to the hospital and six a few days later, were offered to show the injuries, their extent and what resulted from the delay in obtaining treatment. After hearing both sides, the trial court denied the objection.
Even on the merits as to each ground, we find no error. Miller v. State, 179 Ga. App. 100
