Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael R. Working, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Antonio Munford.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Zachary T. Hinkle, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Paul Hagerman, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

The Petitioner, Antonio Munford, filed a petition for writ of error coram nobis relief and a petition for post-conviction relief. Following a hearing on the petitions, the trial court denied relief, finding that the Petitioner’s post-conviction claims were time-barred and that the coram nobis claims were without merit. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that he is entitled to due process tolling of the post-conviction statute of limitations and that the trial court abused its discretion in denying coram nobis relief. Following a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
