In this application for discretionary appeal, Terris Tremaine Radcliff seeks review of the trial court's order denying a motion for new trial in his criminal case. The application materials suggest that Radcliff was convicted, in the State Court of Cobb County, of misdemeanor battery.
From the limited materials presented with the application, the trial court's order appears to be subject to direct appeal. See Rowland v. State, 264 Ga. 872 (1) (452 S.E.2d 756) (1995) (notice of appeal is timely if filed within 30 days of entry of the trial court's order denying a motion for new trial). This Court will grant an otherwise timely discretionary application if the lower court's order is subject to direct appeal. See OCGA § 5-6-35 (j). Accordingly, this application is hereby GRANTED. Radcliff shall have ten days from the date of this order to file a notice of appeal with the trial court. If he has already filed a timely notice of appeal, he need not file a second notice. The clerk of the trial court is DIRECTED to include a copy of this order in the record transmitted to the Court of Appeals.
