A jury found Richard Bishop guilty of operating a chop shop, theft by receiving stolen property, and possession of tools for the commission of a crime, and his convictions were affirmed on appeal in an unpublished opinion. See Bishop v. State, Case No. A16A1486 (decided February 14, 2017). Bishop subsequently filed an extraordinary motion for new trial, which the trial court denied. Bishop then filed this direct appeal.
An order denying an extraordinary motion for a new trial must be appealed by application for discretionary appeal. See OCGA § 5-6-35 (a) (7); Balkcom v. State, 227 Ga.App. 327, 329 (489 S.E.2d 129) (1997). Accordingly, we lack jurisdiction over this direct appeal, which is hereby DISMISSED.
