Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Jul 2, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Larry C. Pittman, Henning, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Mark A. Fulks, Assistant Attorney General; and D. Michael Dunavant, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Petitioner, Larry C. Pitman, filed a petition for habeas corpus relief which the trial court summarily dismissed without an evidentiary hearing. The petition seeks to set aside Petitioner’s 2006 convictions for especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. As pertinent to this appeal, Petitioner alleged that the indictment for each offense which led to his jury convictions is defective because each count of the indictment failed to allege at least one essential element of the criminal charge. After a thorough review of the briefs and the record on appeal, we affirm the judgment of the habeas corpus court.
