Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Cory O’Brien Johnson, alias Deshun Marshay Gibbs, Tiptonville, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; and Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The pro se petitioner, Cory O’Brien Johnson, alias Deshun Marshay Gibbs, appeals the habeas corpus court's summary dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus, arguing that the court violated his due process rights by not holding an evidentiary hearing to consider whether he was afforded appropriate pretrial jail credits. Following our review, we affirm the summary dismissal of the petition on the basis that the petitioner failed to state a colorable claim for habeas corpus relief.
