Robinson v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
In two separate cases, Appellant pleaded guilty to several offenses, including aggravated robbery and theft. Appellant filed a timely petition pursuant to Ark. R. Crim. P. 37 alleging that his convictions were the result of ineffective assistance of his counsel, Kathryn Hudson. The circuit court denied the petition. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the circuit court did not commit clear error in denying Appellant’s petition, as Appellant failed to offer sufficient proof that a State plea offer existed that counsel failed to communicate and failed to explain how certain conduct on the part of counsel intimidated him into pleading guilty.
