Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Eric Bernard Howard, Only, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Brent C. Cherry, Assistant Attorney General; and Kim R. Helper, District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Petitioner, Eric Bernard Howard, appeals from the trial court?s dismissal of his pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus in which he alleged various constitutional violations concerning his convictions and seventeen-year sentence for two counts of aggravated robbery. On appeal, Petitioner argues that the trial court erred by summarily dismissing his petition without a hearing and that his convictions are void because of his diminished mental capacity at the time of the offenses. After a thorough review, we affirm the judgment of the habeas corpus court.
