Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kenneth L. Langley, Mountain City, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

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

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The Petitioner, Kenneth Leroy Langley, appeals the summary dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus. The habeas corpus court found that it was without jurisdiction to hear the petition because the Petitioner filed the writ in the incorrect county. Although we hold that the habeas corpus court had jurisdiction, we nevertheless affirm the dismissal of the petition.
