Leach v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant appealed the trial court’s denial of his petition to correct an illegal sentence pursuant to Ark. Code Ann. 16-90-11b and petition for writ of habeas corpus seeking release from custody. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the trial court correctly found that the habeas petition was not properly addressed to the trial court, therefore depriving the trial court of jurisdiction; and (2) the trial court did not err in denying relief under section 16-90-11 because Appellant’s allegations of ineffective assistance of counsel and sufficiency of the evidence and his assertion of constitutional error did not implicate the facial validity of the judgment and were not within the purview of section 16-90-111.
