Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Yvonne K. Chapman, Germantown, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Joseph L. Coleman.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel Willis, Senior Counsel, Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; Anita Spinetta, Assistant District Attorney General; for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Petitioner, Joseph L. Coleman, appeals the Shelby County Criminal Court’s dismissal of his petition seeking a writ of habeas corpus. The Petitioner contends that the habeas corpus court erred when it dismissed his petition because his sentence is void and unconstitutional. Upon a review of the record in this case, we are persuaded that the habeas court properly dismissed the petition for habeas corpus relief. Accordingly, the judgment of the habeas corpus court is affirmed.
