Lambert v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Pursuant to a negotiated plea agreement, Appellant pled guilty to first-degree domestic battery, second-degree battery, and second-degree terroristic threatening. No appeal was taken from the judgment. Appellant subsequently filed a petition for postconviction relief, which was denied. Appellant then filed a petition to correct an illegal sentence, in which he alleged that his sentence was illegal because trial counsel's advice regarding his parole eligibility was erroneous. The circuit court denied the petition. Before the Supreme Court were Appellant's motions related to the appeal. The Court dismissed the appeal and declared the motions moot after treating his petition was treated as one for postconviction relief, holding that Appellant was barred from submitting a subsequent petition under Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1.
