Walden v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of aggravated robbery. Appellant was sentenced as a habitual offender to 720 months’ imprisonment. The court of appeals affirmed. Thereafter, Appellant filed a petition for postconviction relief pursuant to Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1, which was based on numerous claims that his trial attorney was ineffective. Upon remand, the trial court denied postconviction relief after holding a hearing. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that Appellant did make a showing of ineffective assistance of counsel, and therefore, the trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying postconviction relief.
