Lovett v. Kelley (Majority)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of possession of cocaine with intent to deliver. Appellant was sentenced as a habitual offender to 240 months’ imprisonment. The court of appeals affirmed. Appellant later filed a pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus, alleging, in essence, that there was insufficient evidence put forward at trial to sustain the judgment. The circuit court dismissed the petition, concluding that Appellant had not stated a ground for the writ. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that Appellant failed to state a ground for the writ in his petition, and therefore, relief was properly denied.
