Posted by: Landry Butler on Jul 27, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Cyrus Randy Whitson, Mountain City, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; and Glenn Funk, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Defendant, Cyrus Randy Whitson, appeals the trial court’s dismissal of his motion for arrest of judgment. On appeal, Defendant argues that because the judgment form for his murder conviction is lacking the “file-stamp” date, his motion is timely and should have been granted. Because Defendant does not have a right to appeal the trial court’s dismissal pursuant to Rule 3 of the Tennessee Rules of Appellate Procedure, we dismiss the appeal.
