IN THE INTEREST OF T. H., A CHILD.

No. A22A1413

Court of Appeals of Georgia

June 17, 2022


The Court of Appeals hereby passes the following order:

T. H., a child, appeals from a disposition hearing out of the Juvenile Court of Clayton County. Appellate counsel was not appointed in this case until after this appeal was docketed. Because T. H. intends to raise claims of ineffective assistance of trial counsel and because he did not have the opportunity to raise those claims before the appointment of appellate counsel, we now remand this case to the trial court for an evidentiary hearing and ruling on the issue of trial counsel's effectiveness. See Mangrum v. State, 285 Ga. 676, 683 (12) (681 S.E.2d 130) (2009) (remanding case for trial court to conduct evidentiary hearing on claims of ineffective assistance of trial counsel). Accordingly, Appellant's motion to remand is GRANTED.
