Supreme Court upholds Augusta man’s murder conviction

The Georgia Supreme Court has affirmed the murder conviction of an Augusta man who fatally shot another man inside a hotel room in 2010.

In an opinion released Monday, the court found Timothy G. Cain, 27, was fairly tried and convicted in October 2011 for the murder of 38-year-old Calvin Davis.

Cain fatally shot Davis on June 19, 2010, in front of two women in a room at the Economy Inn on Deans Bridge Road. In addition to the eyewitnesses, there was a sheriff office report filed by Cain’s mother the night before the killing that she feared her son was going to commit a robbery.

Remember when the penalty fit the crime.  When the jury was told before they retired, what the penalty was for a guilty verdict.

When DUI vehicular homicide was 20 years.  The sentence was 20 years.

When first degree murder was a death penalty.  Not the discretion of the judge or jury.

But hey, staying out of the new age courtroom is the best option.  Guilty or innocent.  No one tells the truth.  Especially the lawyers.
