He plans on filing a motion to dismiss for violation of Art.1, Sect. 1, Paragraphs 1, II, XII, and XVII of the Ga. Constitution believing that by depriving him of legal materiel the state is depriving him of his liberty to defend himself without proper process, the equal protection of the constitution, and him of his rights. So, can he be successful on the motion to dismiss and if not can he appeal the judgment on the motion or does he have to wait to appeal on those grounds until after conviction? Also, can he win a jury trial for violation of rights those rights if it's brought up?
