Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jeffery Odom, Pro Se, Atlanta, Georgia.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; William C. Whitesell, Jr., District Attorney General; Trevor Lynch, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): SMITH

Petitioner, Jeffery Odom, was convicted and sentenced for two felonies, with his sentences to be served concurrently. He filed a petition for habeas corpus relief, contending that the concurrent sentences violated a statute that required consecutive sentencing under the circumstances. The trial court dismissed his petition. He filed a notice of appeal more than 30 days after the entry of the trial court’s order, in violation of Tennessee Rule of Appellate Procedure 4(b). We dismiss this appeal because of the untimely filing.
