Horton v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of aggravated residential burglary, theft of property, and failure to appear. The court of appeals affirmed. Thereafter, Appellant filed a petition for postconviction relief pursuant to Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1, contending that he was not afforded effective assistance of counsel at trial or on direct appeal. The trial court denied the petition. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the trial court did not err in denying the relief sought where Appellant did not state a ground for relief under Rule 37.1.
