Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

LaShonda Moneak Williamson, Memphis, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Senior Counsel; Glenn R. Funk, District Attorney General; and Rachel Sobrero, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

LaShonda Moneak Williamson, the Appellant, appeals the summary denial of her Tennessee Rule of Criminal Procedure 36.1 motion to correct an illegal sentence that she claims was imposed as the result of a coerced guilty plea. Because the Appellant?s motion failed to state a colorable claim, we affirm the trial court?s summary denial of the motion pursuant to Rule 20, Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals.
