FERRELL v. THE STATE.
62805.
CARLEY, Judge.
Appeal from Recorder's Court. Chatham Recorder's Court. Before Judge Drew.
Appellant attempts to bring a direct appeal to this court from a sentence imposed by the Recorder's Court of Chatham County. Under Art. VI, Sec. II of the Constitution of this state (Code Ann. 2-3108), this court has jurisdiction "for the trial and correction of errors of law from the superior courts and from the City Courts of Atlanta and Savannah, as they existed on August 19, 1916, and such other like courts as have been or may hereafter be established in other cities . . ." (Emphasis supplied.) It is clear that the Recorder's Court of Chatham County is not such a "like court" within the meaning of the constitutional provision establishing this court's jurisdiction. See Sapp v. State, 24 Ga. App. 712 (101 SE 919) (1919). "The proper procedure for appealing from any decision of the Recorder's Court of [Chatham] County is by application for a writ of certiorari under the provisions of the Georgia Constitution (Code Ann. 2-3305) and statutory law (Code Ann. 19-203). Ga. L. 1959 pp. 3093, 3100." Henson v. DeKalb County, 158 Ga. App. 348, 349 (280 SE2d 393) (1981).
Spencer Lawton, Jr., District Attorney, for appellee.
Robert E. Robinson, for appellant.
DECIDED JANUARY 11, 1982.
