Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Willard William Wright, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jonathan H. Wardle, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; Laticia Alexander, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, the State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Petitioner, Willard William Wright, filed a petition for post-conviction relief attacking his conviction, pursuant to a negotiated guilty plea, for burglary of a motor vehicle in Davidson County Criminal Court case number 2010-C-2534. The post-conviction court summarily dismissed the petition because it was filed after the applicable one year statute of limitations had run. Petitioner appeals, arguing that the statute of limitations should be tolled on due process grounds. After a thorough review of the record, we affirm the judgment of the postconviction court.
