State v. Mark Geter
Case# 01SC11017; Murder Felony Murder (3), Aggravated Assault, Cruelty to Children, Cruelty to Children

Defendant accused of beating and burning 14 month old Crystal Langley. Victim’s mother pled guilty and testified against the defendant in exchange for a 15 year prison sentence. Mother testified that Defendant had battered her and had tied her to a tree and threatened to have his pit bulls (Mickey and Mallory) bite her. She also testified that Defendant had poured gasoline on her and threatened to set her afire. Defendant had always maintained that the mother had actually beaten the child when he was at work or away from the home. Not Guilty of Murder and Cruelty by Burning. Hung on the remaining counts. Judge Stephanie B. Manis, Fulton Superior Court. Case was finally resolved prior to retrial.
Judge Manis held Attorney Butterfield in contempt of court because he conducted a very vigorous and thorough cross-examination of the child’s mother who was the co-defendant/star witness. The Court of Appeals of Georgia REVERSED AND REMANDED the case. “Thus, no evidence supports the court’s finding that Butterfield willfully disobeyed the court’s order to complete his cross-examination with the time specified…We hold that an order to reorganize one’s cross-examination is simply too vague to be the basis for a contempt order.” In re Butterfield, 265 Ga. App. 745, 595 S.E. 2d 588 (2004).
