Fulton v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Defendant was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to 420 months’ imprisonment. The court of appeals affirmed on appeal. Thereafter, Defendant filed a pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus, arguing that the evidence was insufficient to support the judgment. The circuit court denied the petition without a hearing on the ground that Defendant had not stated a ground for the writ. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the circuit court properly denied the writ because Defendant did not state a ground on which a writ of habeas corpus could be issued.
