Allen v. Kelley (Substituted)Annotate this Case
After a third jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of aggravated robbery. Appellant was sentenced to life imprisonment. The Supreme Court affirmed. Appellant later filed a pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus, alleging, inter alia, that he received ineffective assistance of counsel and that, although he was twenty-one years old at the time the offense was committed, he should have been treated the same as a juvenile. The circuit court dismissed Appellant’s petition. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that Appellant’s claims were either outside the purview of a habeas corpus proceeding or without merit.
