State ex rel. Sutton v. Henderson

No. 53529 | La. | May 24, 1973

Lead Opinion

In re: Steven Wayne Sutton applying for writ of habeas corpus.

Writ refused. The showing made is insufficient to warrant the exercise of our jurisdiction.

Dissenting Opinion


is of the opinion that the writ should be granted to order an evi-dentiary hearing. Relator alleges coercion to plead on a promise of releasing his father and girl friend from incarceration after a month of their incarceration under a charge of vagrancy. A plea obtained on this basis would be invalid. A hearing should be had to determine the actual facts.
