Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Brian E. Dodson, Tiptonville, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Nicholas W. Spangler, Assistant Attorney General; Stephen Crump, District Attorney General; and Cynthia A. LeCroy- Schemel, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Brian E. Dodson, appeals the denial of his motion, filed pursuant to Tennessee Rule of Criminal Procedure 36.1, to correct what he believes to be an illegal sentence. Because the defendant has failed to state a colorable claim for relief under Rule 36.1, the interests of justice do not require that we waive the timely filing of the notice of appeal in this case. Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed.
