McHaney v. Hobbs (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Pursuant to a negotiated plea agreement, Appellant pled guilty to manufacturing a controlled substance, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine, and failure to appear. Appellant subsequently filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus and a motion to proceed in forma pauperis. The circuit court granted the motion but denied the petition. The Supreme Court dismissed Appellant's appeal and declared the motions related to the appeal moot, holding that because none of the allegations contained in Appellant's petition provided a basis for finding that a writ of habeas corpus should issue, it was clear Appellant could not prevail if his appeal were allowed to proceed.
