Walker v. State

Woman testifies that the father of her children beat her up, held a knife to baby’s throat. She also states that she didn’t want to testify, but prosecutors threatened to jail her and put her children in foster care if she didn’t. The next day of the trial, she partially recants, says the man didn’t hold a knife to the baby. He’s convicted. She’s indicted, pleads guilty to perjury, sentenced to probation. Georgia appeals court: No need to revisit the man’s conviction.
