Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Roger Joseph, pro se, Mountain City, Tennessee, as the appellant.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; and Deshea Dulaney Faughn, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): BIVINS

Roger Joseph (“the Petitioner”) filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus, asserting, among other claims, that, due to mental illness, he could not have formed the requisite intent for first degree murder. The habeas corpus court dismissed his petition without a hearing. The Petitioner now appeals. After a thorough review of the record and the applicable law, we affirm the habeas corpus court’s judgment dismissing the Petitioner’s habeas corpus petition.
