Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robert J. Skillen, Clinton, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; and Clark B. Thornton, Assistant Attorney General; for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): BIVINS

Robert J. Skillen (“the Petitioner”), proceeding pro se, filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, alleging that the indictment for his two convictions for sexual battery by an authority figure and four convictions for rape of a child is defective because it failed to allege any facts constituting an offense. The habeas corpus court summarily denied relief, and this appeal followed. We affirm the habeas corpus court’s judgment pursuant to Rule 20 of the Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals.
