Emphasis mine*Simpson v State said:"Because a crime is by definition a public wrong against the State, it is not usually an acceptable defense that the person wronged by a criminal has condoned the offense.â€
Quote from a case I'm reading (BRADLEY v. STATE (2001)) they quoted the above quote from Simpson v State (1994). Link to Bradley: http://caselaw.findlaw.com/ga-court-of- ... note_ref_6 Couldn't find Simpson online anywhere.
if you want to try to look up Simpson: Simpson v. State, 214 Ga.App. 587, 588(2), 448 S.E.2d 370 (1994).
