Ashby v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
In 1994, Petitioner was convicted of the rape of a boy and sentenced to thirty years in prison. The court of appeals affirmed. In 2016, Petitioner filed a petition seeking reinvestment of jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for writ of error coram nobis in the case. Petitioner also filed a motion asking that the petition be granted. The Supreme Court denied the petition and the motion, holding (1) with the exception of the allegations that could possibly be construed as claims that certain material was omitted from the trial record by the State, Petitioner failed to state a ground under which a writ of error coram nobis could issue; and (2) as to Petitioner’s allegations that material was omitted from the trial court, there was no ground for the writ.
