In 2008, a jury found the Petitioner, Tornita N. Crenshaw, guilty of two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of aggravated burglary, one count of especially aggravated kidnapping, and one count of coercion of a witness. The jury also convicted three co- defendants related to these offenses. On joint direct appeal, this Court affirmed the Petitioner’s convictions. See State v. Lance Sandifer, Stephon Dante Cunningham, Tornita Crenshaw, & Glenard Thorne, No. M2008-02849-CCA-R3-CD, 2010 WL 5343202, at *1 (Tenn. Crim. App., at Nashville, Dec. 21, 2010), perm. app. denied (Tenn. May 26, 2011). On April 11, 2016, the Petitioner filed a petition for a writ of error coram nobis alleging numerous errors. The trial court issued an order on April 25, 2016, dismissing the petition as time-barred. We affirm the trial court’s judgment.
