Franklin D. Fish, Pikeville, Tennessee, pro se.

Judge(s): WITT

The petitioner, Franklin D. Fish, pro se, appeals the Wilson County Criminal Court’s summary dismissal of his petition for post-conviction relief for failure to state a colorable claim. The State concedes that summary dismissal was erroneous. Upon our review, we reverse the decision of the post-conviction court and remand for proceedings consistent with the Post-Conviction Procedure Act.
