Oliver v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant entered a negotiated plea of guilty to attempted first-degree murder and aggravated robbery and was sentenced to an aggregate term of 780 months’ imprisonment. Appellant later filed in the trial court a pro se petition for writ of error coram nobis, alleging ineffective assistance of counsel and that his guilty plea was coerced because his plea was the result of his mental state. The trial court denied the petition. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the ineffective-assistance-of-counsel allegations did not establish a ground for the writ; and (2) Petitioner failed to present facts sufficient to demonstrate that there was information not known at the time of trial that could have established that he was insane and incompetent to proceed.
