Defense attorney Brian Steel told a Fulton County magistrate on Friday that the 23-year-old Crittenton had decided to forgo his right and did not attend the session. His next hearing is set for Sept. 30.
Police have charged Crittenton with killing 22-year-old Julian Jones, a mother of four, during a drive-by shooting. Investigators say the shots were meant for someone who was walking with her.
Crittenton has denied any involvement in the killing. He was arrested in California and returned to Atlanta this week.
