Posted by: Stacey Shrader Joslin on Jul 17, 2013

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ashad RA Muhammad Ali, Tiptonville, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; and Meredith Devault, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Petitioner, Ashad RA Muhammad Ali, appeals the habeas corpus court’s summary dismissal of his petition for relief. He contends that the habeas corpus court erroneously concluded that his petition failed to state a cognizable claim for relief, noting (1) that this court has held that the trial court’s failure to include pre-trial jail credits on the judgment of conviction is a proper basis for habeas corpus relief and (2) that his judgment of conviction on “count three contains a facial error [because] count three cannot be ordered to run both consecutively and concurrently to the same sentence.” Following our review of the record and the applicable authorities, we affirm the judgment of the habeas corpus court.
