Wells v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
In 2011, Appellant entered a plea of guilty to murder in the first degree and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Appellant subsequently filed a pro se petition for postconviction relief, raising two allegations that his attorney was ineffective. The trial court denied the petition. Before the Supreme Court was Appellant's pro se motion for an extension of time to file his brief-in-chief. The Supreme Court dismissed Appellant's appeal and declared his motion moot, holding that Appellant could not prevail on appeal as Appellant did not meet his burden of demonstrating that his plea should be vacated under Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1.
