THURSDAY – AUGUST 25, 2011
LOCATION: GILMER COUNTY COURTHOUSE JURY ASSEMBLY ROOM
A young Ellijay woman will stand trial for murder a second time, after the Georgia Supreme Court issued a rare conviction reversal.
The court’s unanimous opinion found a Gilmer County court abused its discretion by allowing “improper and prejudicial” character evidence of Courtney Boring’s “gothic” lifestyle, which suggested the young woman held satanic beliefs.
In sum, “one is left with the feeling that the [evidence in question] was employed simply because the jury would find these beliefs morally reprehensible.”
– Georgia Supreme Court
Boring was convicted of murdering her mother with a shotgun blast to the head and sentenced to life in prison plus five years back in 2007. Over the years, her attorneys continued to appeal the case and finally got the reversal they were looking for from Georgia’s High Court. Last week, Boring was transferred from a Georgia state prison back into the custody of the Gilmer County Sheriff’s Department to await her new trial date, which is yet to be set.
