Smith v. Hobbs (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant pled guilty to a charge of aggravated robbery, pursuant to a negotiated plea agreement, and was sentenced to 180 months' incarceration. Subsequently, Appellant filed a petition for postconviction relief, which was denied. No appeal was taken from that denial. Thereafter, Appellant filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus, which the circuit court denied. The Supreme Court dismissed Appellant's appeal and declared the motions related to the appeal and the petition moot, holding (1) Appellant failed to demonstrate that his judgment was invalid on its face or that he was otherwise illegally detained; and (2) nothing in Appellant's other allegations would provide a basis on which a writ of habeas corpus could issue.
