Clayton v. Kelley (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of rape and second-degree sexual assault. Appellant was sentenced as a habitual offender to an aggregate term of 960 months’ imprisonment. The court of appeals affirmed. Appellant later filed this pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus seeking to have the judgment vacated or to be resentenced, arguing that there was insufficient evidence to sustain the judgment and that his sentence violated the Eighth Amendment. The trial court denied relief. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the petition did not allege any basis for relief proper in a habeas proceeding.
