Bliss v. Hobbs (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant was a prisoner serving a life sentence on a rape conviction that followed his retrial after the Supreme Court reversed and remanded for an error for not requiring the prosecutor to file a bill of particulars. In 2012, Appellant filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus in the circuit court of the county where he was incarcerated, and the circuit court dismissed the petition. Appellant lodged in the Supreme Court an appeal of the order dismissing the petition, and he filed motions seeking the appointment of counsel for the appeal and an extension of time in which to file his brief. The Court dismissed the appeal and declared the motions moot, holding that Appellant's claims were without merit and that he could not prevail on appeal.
