Williams v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Defendant was found guilty of three counts of rape and sentenced as a habitual offender to life imprisonment. Defendant later filed a pro se petition to correct an illegal sentence, arguing that the information violated the constitutional provisions against double jeopardy, the State violated Brady v. Maryland, and he was entitled to indictment by grand jury. The trial court denied relief. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the trial court’s decision was not clearly erroneous because Defendant did not meet his burden of demonstrating that the sentence was illegal.
