Hendrix v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a bench trial, Appellant was found guilty of internet stalking of a child and sentenced to 240 months’ imprisonment. The court of appeals affirmed. After the court of appeals’ mandate was issued, Appellant filed in the trial court a pro se petition for postconviction relief pursuant to Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1. The original petition was not properly verified. The trial court nonetheless held a hearing on the petition and denied it. The Supreme Court dismissed Appellant’s appeal without reaching its merits on the grounds that the petition filed in the trial court was subject to dismissal because Appellant did not comply with Rule 37.1(c) because he failed to file a properly verified petition within the time allowed by the Rule.
