Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Patrick E. Stegall, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Reginald Rome.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Shaun Schielke, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): EASTER

Petitioner, Reginald Rome, appeals the dismissal of his petition for a writ of error coram nobis which alleged newly discovered evidence. The coram nobis court found that due process principles did not require tolling the statute of limitations and that Petitioner had failed to prove that he was without fault in failing to present this evidence at the proper time. Upon our review, we affirm the judgment of the coram nobis court.
