Woods v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and was sentenced to an aggregate sentence of 480 months’ imprisonment. Appellant subsequently filed a petition for postconviction relief pursuant to Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1, alleging various grounds of ineffective assistance of counsel. The trial court denied relief. Thereafter, Appellant filed a second Rule 37.1 petition. Now before the Supreme Court was Appellant’s motion for extension of time to file a brief. The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal and declared the motion moot, holding that the trial court properly denied Appellant’s request for postconviction relief because Appellant attempted to raise claims in an unauthorized second Rule 37.1 petition and because the petition was untimely.
