DA Slater says new evidence does not trump overwhelming evidence against Gary


COLUMBUS, Ga. — District Attorney Julia Slater responds to a final appeal by Carlton Gary’s lawyers in this 40-year-old case.

Defense attorneys filed an appeal November 1 with the Georgia Supreme Court after a judge ruled that new evidence did not merit a new trial or sentencing in the case.

Slater was give ten days to respond and Monday, the final day of the deadline.

Slater said, “The evidence still overwhelmingly convicts Gary, even taking new evidence into consideration.
