Swanigan v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial in 1993, Petitioner was found guilty of murder in the first degree. Petitioner was sentenced to life imprisonment. In 2016, Petitioner filed his third petition to reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for writ of error coram nobis. In the petition, Petitioner reiterated claims raised in a second coram-nobis petition that the Supreme Court denied in 2015. The Supreme Court dismissed the petition, holding that the petition was an abuse of the writ because Petitioner had raised essentially the same claims in his second petition.
