Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1: Jerome Williams, Clifton, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2: Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; and Mark A. Fulks, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The petitioner, Jerome Williams, appeals the Wayne County Circuit Court’s summary dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus. In this appeal, the petitioner claims entitlement to habeas corpus relief on the basis that the trial court was without jurisdiction to enter his 1986 conviction of aggravated rape because the indictment failed to allege an offense. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the habeas corpus court.
