JONES v. THE STATE.

A16A0523

Decided: May 25, 2018

ELLINGTON, P. J., MERCIER, J., and SENIOR APPELLATE JUDGE PHIPPS

In Jones v. State, 337 Ga. App. 687 (787 SE2d 300) (2016), this Court rejected appellant Randall Lee's arguments that the jury verdicts against him for bringing stolen property into the state and theft by conversion of that same property were mutually exclusive. Id. at 690. In Jones v. State, 302 Ga. 730 (808 SE2d 655) (2017), the Supreme Court of Georgia reversed our decision and concluded that “reversal of both verdicts is required.” Id. at 733. We hereby adopt the decision of our Supreme Court as our own and reverse the trial court's denial of Jones's motion for new trial.

PHIPPS, Senior Appellate Judge.

Judgment reversed. Ellington, P. J., and Mercier, J., concur.
