Newman v. State (Majority)Annotate this Case
In 2002, Petitioner was convicted of one count of capital murder and sentenced to death. In 2014, the Supreme Court vacated Petitioner’s conviction and sentence and remanded for a new trial, concluding that Petitioner was not competent to stand trial in 2002. The circuit court ultimately found Petitioner fit to proceed with trial. Petitioner filed a motion to dismiss for violation of his right to a speedy trial. The circuit court denied the petition. Thereafter, Petitioner filed this petition for a writ of certiorari. The Supreme Court denied the writ, holding that Petitioner did not meet the requirements for issuance of a writ of certiorari.
