Supreme Court to decide fate of Columbus man

By Web Staff – email | Twitter

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The fate of a Columbus man, convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping, hangs in the balance.

George Anderson was found guilty back in 2004 for breaking into a Sally's Beauty supply store and stealing money and employees' credit cards.

The State Court of Appeals threw out his conviction based on the judge's comments.

Monday, the state is appealing that reversal to the state Supreme Court.

It could be weeks before a decision is made.
