Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jason Clinard, Only, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee and Mark A. Fulks, Assistant Attorneys General; and Kim Helper, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Petitioner, Jason Clinard, appeals the Hickman County Circuit Court’s summary dismissal of his petition seeking a writ of habeas corpus. The Petitioner, who was convicted of first degree murder, contends that his conviction was illegal because he was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole, which he states contravenes statute. Upon a review of the record in this case, we conclude that the habeas corpus court properly denied the petition for habeas corpus relief. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the habeas corpus court.
