Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Carl P.E. Munsey, Wartburg, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; and John H. Bledsoe, Senior Counsel, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The petitioner, Carl P.E. Munsey, challenges his sentences for three 1978 convictions for armed robbery. The petitioner’s claim is primarily based on an assertion that the sentencing provisions of the statute he was sentenced under had been repealed by the legislature and his sentences are therefore illegal. The habeas corpus court dismissed the petition without a hearing. We conclude that the sentences are not illegal, and we affirm the judgment of the habeas corpus court.
