Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Levar O. Williams, pro se, Atlanta, Georgia.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Deshea Dulany Faughn, Senior Counsel; R. Stephen Bebb, District Attorney General; and Andrew D. Watts, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The petitioner, Levar O. Williams, appeals the trial court’s denial of his motion to correct an illegal sentence. Following our review of the briefs of the parties, the record, and the applicable authorities, we conclude that the petitioner failed to file a timely notice of appeal and that the “interest of justice” does not warrant waiver of the timely notice requirement. As a result, we dismiss his appeal.
