Wilson v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant Charles Wilson was found guilty by a jury of delivery of a controlled substance and was sentenced as a habitual offender to serve a term of 480 months' imprisonment. Appellant subsequently filed an untimely pro se petition for postconviction relief, which the trial court denied. Appellant appealed, and before the Supreme Court were Appellant's pro se motions seeking an extension of time to file his brief-in-chief and a copy of the record. The Court dismissed the appeal and declared the motions moot, holding that because Appellant did not timely file his petition, the trial court lacked jurisdiction to consider his petition, and thus, the Supreme Court also lacked jurisdiction.
