Williams v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Petitioner, who represented himself at trial with standby counsel, was convicted of aggravated robbery, terroristic threatening in the first degree, theft of property, and battery in the third degree. The Court of Appeals affirmed. Now before the Supreme Court was Petitioner’s pro se petition to reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for writ of error coram nobis in the case. In his petition, Petitioner argued that he was not sane at the time he committed the offenses or at the time of trial. The Supreme Court denied the petition, holding (1) to the extent Petitioner was contending that his pretrial or standby counsel was ineffective, he did not state a ground for the writ; and (2) Petitioner did not establish any other basis on which the writ could be issued.
