Jordan v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Petitioner was found guilty of rape. Petitioner was sentenced as a habitual offender to life imprisonment. The Supreme Court affirmed. Now before the 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 asserted that the State violated his right to due process pursuant to Brady v. Maryland by concealing information from the defense. The Supreme Court denied the petition, holding that Petitioner’s allegations failed to establish that there was some material evidence withheld that would have prevented rendition of the judgment had it been known at the time of trial.
