Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Odell Wisdom, Mountain City, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter, and Robert W. Wilson, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Petitioner, Odell Wisdom, appeals as of right from the Johnson County Circuit Court’s summary dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus. He claims entitlement to habeas corpus relief, alleging that his separate convictions for contempt and failure to appear violate double jeopardy principles. Following our review, we conclude that the Petitioner has failed to state a cognizable claim for relief and, therefore, affirm the summary dismissal of his petition.
