Authoring Judge: Judge Alan E. Glenn
Trial Court Judge: Joseph H. Walker, III
The petitioner appeals the trial court's dismissal of his petition for habeas corpus relief. The trial court determined that the allegations contained in the petitioner's pro se petition were not ones that would entitle him to habeas corpus relief, and therefore dismissed his petition. After a careful review of the record, we affirm the trial court's dismissal of the petition.

Dexter Frank Johnson vs. State
E2004-01260-CCA-R3-HC
Authoring Judge: Judge Norma McGee Ogle
Trial Court Judge: Stephen M. Bevil
The petitioner, Dexter Frank Johnson, appeals the dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus. The state has filed a motion requesting that this court affirm the action of the trial court pursuant to Rule 20, Tenn. Ct. Crim. App. R. The petition fails to present a cognizable claim for habeas corpus relief. Accordingly, the state's motion is granted and the judgment of the trial court is affirmed.
Hamilton County Court of Criminal Appeals 02/11/94
Johnny McGowan, Jr. vs. State
M2003-01759-CCA-R3-HC
Authoring Judge: Judge Robert W. Wedemeyer
Trial Court Judge: Don Ash
The Petitioner, Johnny L. McGowan, Jr., pled guilty in 1994 to aggravated arson, arson, six counts of reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and two counts of vandalism, and the trial court sentenced him to twenty years in prison, to be served concurrently with a sentence from a previous conviction. In 2003, the Petitioner filed two pro se petitions for writs of habeas corpus in case numbers 27902 and 27903 alleging that his guilty pleas were not entered knowingly and voluntarily and requesting that the trial court appoint him counsel. The trial court summarily dismissed the petitions because it found that the Petitioner's claims, considered in the light most favorable to him, would at best render his convictions voidable and not void. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that the trial court erred by denying his request for appointment of counsel and by dismissing his petitions because there were "fatal variances" between the indictments and the evidence contained in the record. Finding no reversible error, we affirm the trial court's judgments.
