Timothy. v. StateAnnotate this Case
Petitioner Timothy Davis entered a plea of guilty to capital murder and was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. Davis subsequently filed a petition for postconviction relief, which the trial court denied on its merits. Petitioner did not perfect an appeal from the trial court's order denying relief and sought leave from the Supreme Court to proceed with a belated appeal. The Court denied the motion, holding that because Petitioner's only ground for granting a belated appeal was that he timely filed a notice of appeal and he did not substantiate that claim, Petitioner failed to demonstrate that he should be permitted to proceed with a belated appeal of the trial court's order.
