Judge(s): PAGE

Appellant, John Eugene Grigsby, was convicted of attempted second degree murder and reckless endangerment. Appellant later filed a motion to correct an illegal sentence pursuant to Tennessee Rule of Criminal Procedure 36.1, which the trial court summarily dismissed, holding that appellant had failed to state a colorable claim. On appeal, appellant argues that the trial court erred in summarily dismissing his motion. Following our review of the parties’ briefs, the record, and the applicable law, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
