Evans v. StateAnnotate this Case
Petitioner Lavelle Evans was found guilty by a jury of several drug offenses. Petitioner was sentenced as a habitual offender to an aggregate sentence of 960 months' imprisonment. The court of appeals affirmed. Petitioner subsequently filed with the Supreme Court a pro se petition to reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for writ of error coram nobis challenging the judgment, alleging that one of the jurors at his trial was biased. The Court denied the relief sought, holding that Petitioner's claim of juror bias was not cognizable as a ground for a writ of error coram nobis.
