Murry v. Hobbs (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
In 2005, Appellant pleaded guilty to charges of theft by receiving, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Appellant received a ten-year suspended sentence on each count, but, in 2009, the trial court revoked Appellant’s suspended imposition of sentence for Appellant’s failure to meet the conditions under which the sentence was suspended. In 2013, Appellant filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus alleging that he was not afforded effective assistance of counsel when he entered his guilty plea and that the 2005 ten-year suspended imposition of sentence was an illegal sentence. The circuit court denied the petition. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that Appellant did not establish a basis for a writ of habeas corpus to issue.
