Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Dec 12, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ronald L. Taylor, Coleman, Florida, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; Jennifer L. Smith, Assistant Attorney General; and Randall E. Nichols, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

On April 23, 2012, the petitioner, Ronald L. Taylor, filed pro se a petition for post-conviction relief challenging his 2005 conviction of aggravated assault. The post-conviction court summarily dismissed the petition based, in part, upon the bar of the statute of limitations. The State has moved this court pursuant to this court’s rule 20 to summarily affirm the postconviction court’s order of dismissal. Because the record evinces no basis for tolling the statute of limitations and because the petition was untimely and barred by the statute, we grant the State’s motion and affirm the post-conviction court’s order.
