SNELL v. THE STATE.
62122.
DEEN, Presiding Judge.
Robbery, etc. Muscogee Superior Court. Before Judge Followill.
2. "Decisions of counsel, properly described as trial tactics, do not equate to ineffective assistance of counsel." Harrell v. State, 139 Ga. App. 556, 558 (228 SE2d 723) (1976).
As to one of the robberies described in the indictment defense counsel and the district attorney stipulated that a witness, whose distance from the place of trial would have caused a delay, did in fact have her purse snatched by an unidentified black male on the date in question, that there were some checks in the pocketbook, and that she had not authorized any other person to sign her name to her checks. The forged check was of course produced and identified. Nothing in the stipulation connected the defendant with the occurrence. A stipulation by the defendant in a criminal case not withdrawn is, like an admission in judicio, binding upon him. Tribble v. State, 89 Ga. App. 593, 598 (80 SE2d 711) (1954); Harris v. State, 133 Ga. App. 310 (1) (211 SE2d 144) (1974).
3. The evidence in each case was adequate to establish the guilt of the defendant beyond a reasonable doubt.
William J. Smith, District Attorney, Gray Conger, Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
John D. Allen, for appellant.
DECIDED JUNE 17, 1981.
Thursday May 21 23:33 EDT
