Davida Caylor was convicted by a Catoosa County jury on March 19, 2014 for the offenses of Making a False Statement, Tampering with Evidence and Obstruction of an Officer. The offenses arose out of an incident involving Caylor’s son at a local school in which the defendant made a false allegation about the extent of an injury to her son’s hand and then interfered with law enforcement’s efforts to gather evidence and information related to her claim. The defendant was sentenced on May 7, 2014 and appealed her convictions. The Court of Appeals of Georgia upheld her convictions in an unpublished opinion issued on December 23, 2015 and the remittitur was returned to the Catoosa County Superior Court Clerk on January 7, 2016. The State was represented by Chief Assistant District Attorney Chris Arnt. The defendant was represented by Richard K. Murray, an attorney from Dalton, Georgia.
