Anderson v. Kelley (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant, an inmate incarcerated in the Arkansas Department of Correction, filed a pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus, which the circuit court denied. Appellant subsequently tendered a belated petition for rehearing at the same time that he filed a pro se motion for rule on clerk. Appellant asked the Supreme Court to direct its clerk to file the belated petition for rehearing, contending that the untimely petition should be filed because he placed a petition for rehearing in the mail prior to expiration of the deadline for filing. The Supreme Court denied the motion, holding that Appellant’s procedural default does not come within the parameters of the prison mailbox rule.
