Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

William R. Holt, Only, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; and T. Michel Bottoms, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Defendant, William R. Holt, was convicted of second degree murder and aggravated robbery upon his “best interest” guilty pleas. See T.C.A. §§ 39-13-210 (2014), 39-13-402 (2014). As part of the plea agreement, he accepted a thirty-year sentence at 100% service for second degree murder and a concurrent twelve-year sentence at 100% service for aggravated robbery. Almost two years later, the Defendant filed a motion pursuant to Tennessee Criminal Procedure Rule 36.1 requesting that the trial court correct errors in the judgments relative to his offender classification. The trial court summarily dismissed the motion. On appeal, he contends that the trial court erred in dismissing his motion. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
