Eason v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Petitioner was found guilty of nine counts of first-degree battery. No appeal was taken. An amended sentencing order was entered reflecting that Petitioner was sentenced to 3240 months’ imprisonment. Approximately thirty-six months after an amended sentencing order was entered, Petitioner sought leave to proceed with a belated appeal and asked that counsel be appointed to represent him on appeal. The Supreme Court dismissed Petitioner’s motion for belated appeal and declared moot his motion for appointment of counsel, holding that Petitioner did not meet his burden of filing a timely motion within the time period allowed under Ark. R. App. P.-Crim. 2(e).
