Anderson v. State (Majority)Annotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the orders of the circuit court denying Appellant’s pro se motion for leave to file an amended declaratory judgment and petition to correct an illegal sentence, which rendered moot Appellant’s pro se motion for appointment of counsel filed in connection with this appeal. In his declaratory judgment action, Appellant sought a declaration that the lemons of a terrorist act as set forth in Ark. Code Ann. 5-13-310 are internally inconsistent, rendering the statute unconstitutional. In his petition to correct an illegal sentence, Appellant argued that his sentence was imposed pursuant to an allegedly unconstitutional statute. In affirming the denial of Appellant’s filings, holding (1) Appellant failed to establish that the challenged statute was unconstitutional; and (2) Appellant failed to demonstrate that his sentences were facially illegal.
