Craig v. Hobbs (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant Johnny Craig, an incarcerated inmate, filed in the county in which he was incarcerated a petition for writ of habeas corpus, alleging that the information charging him was insufficient, the trial court lacked jurisdiction, and the trial court gave an erroneous jury instruction. The trial court dismissed the petition. Before the Supreme Court was Appellant's motion for an extension of time in which to file his brief. The Court dismissed the appeal and declared the motion moot, holding that because Appellant did not, in his petition, invoke Act 1780, plead facts cognizable in a habeas corpus petition, or make a showing of probable cause for issuance of the writ, Appellant's petition did not merit relief, and the trial court did not err in dismissing the petition.
