Posted by: Chandra Williams on Nov 18, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Eric Mogy, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Antonio Byrd.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Ahmed A. Safeeullah, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Carla Taylor, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The petitioner, Antonio Byrd, appeals from the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of his motion to reopen his 1999 petition for post-conviction relief. Because the petitioner failed to comply with the statutory requirements for appealing the denial of a motion to reopen a post-conviction petition, we are without jurisdiction to hear the appeal, and the appeal is dismissed.
