Chatmon v. State

The Supreme Court denied Petitioner’s pro se petition to reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for writ of error coram nobis in his criminal case, an amendment to the petition, and Petitioner’s motion for leave to file a response to the State’s response to the petition. In his petition, Petitioner contended that, at trial, the State violated the provisions of Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963) by presenting false testimony from a certain witness and that the State failed to provide information to the defense concerning the witness’s criminal history, arrest records and rap sheet. The Supreme Court held that Petitioner failed to state a ground for the writ and thus denied the coram nobis petition. View "Chatmon v. State" on Justia Law
