Goins v. NorrisAnnotate this Case
Appellant Jessie Goins was convicted by a jury of aggravated robbery and was sentenced as a habitual offender to life imprisonment. The Supreme Court affirmed. Appellant subsequently filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus. The petition was denied by a written order. Appellant then filed a second petition for writ of habeas corpus, asserting the same grounds for the writ as he alleged in the earlier habeas petition. The petition was denied. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the circuit court did not err in determining that the claims presented in Appellant's petition were not the kind that could support habeas-corpus relief; and (2) the circuit court did not err in determining that Appellant's second point was not cognizable in a habeas-corpus petition.
