Smith v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Petitioner was found guilty of two counts of rape. Petitioner was sentenced to two consecutive terms of twenty years’ imprisonment. Now before the Supreme Court was Petitioner’s fourth pro se application to reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for writ of error coram nobis. In his petition, Petitioner raised allegations not raised in the first three petitions, including claims that his judgment of conviction was illegally rendered because of an invalid arrest warrant and an insufficient information. The Supreme Court denied the petition, holding that Petitioner’s allegations were not cognizable in a coram-nobis proceeding and were otherwise without merit.
