Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1: Roger Dale Harris, Mountain City, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2: Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; and Anthony Wade Clark, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): TIPTON

The Petitioner, Roger Dale Harris, appeals the Johnson County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for habeas corpus relief from his 1991 conviction for first degree murder and resulting sentence of life imprisonment. He contends that the conviction is void because of a defective indictment and that the trial judge should have recused himself. The State has moved this court to affirm the trial court’s denial of relief by memorandum opinion pursuant to Rule 20 of the Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals. The State’s motion for a memorandum opinion is granted, and the judgment of the trial court is affirmed.
