Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Jul 9, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Frank Shackelton, Nashville, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; and Clark B. Thornton, Senior Counsel, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The pro se petitioner, Frank Shackleton, appeals the Davidson County Circuit Court’s summary dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus, arguing that his conviction and sentence are illegal and void because he pled guilty to an offense with a different date from the offense date in the indictment. Because the petitioner has failed to state a cognizable claim for habeas corpus relief, we affirm the summary dismissal of the petition.
