Posted by: Landry Butler on Jul 5, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Matthew Allen Thompson, Wartburg, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Katherine C. Redding, Assistant Attorney General; and M. Neal Pinkston, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Defendant, Matthew Allen Thompson, filed a motion to correct an illegal sentence pursuant to Tennessee Rule of Criminal Procedure 36. The trial court denied the motion, and Defendant appeals. Although Defendant filed his motion pursuant to Rule 36 and quoted Rule 36 in his motion, the trial court treated the motion as a Rule 36.1 motion. We conclude under either Rule 36 or 36.1 that Defendant is not entitled to relief. Accordingly, we affirm the trial court’s denial of the motion.
