A prison inmate from Scurry County, who is serving one sentence with two more ahead of him, may have gotten himself in more trouble with the state’s highest court for lying in an appeal motion.
What kind of lies have you seen?
Just out of curiosity, if the perjury charges do go forward, and he wants to appeal and then request PDR, is the entire CCA barred from hearing the case since they referred it to the prosecutor? If so, would the Supreme Court then decide any PDR?
I do not believe the case would not be effectively transferred to the Supreme Court, but rather the Governor would appoint special substitute judges to serve as the Court of Criminal Appeals, similar to what has happened in Texas Supreme Court cases such as Johnson, 83 S.W.2d 605 and Ellis, 13 S.W.2d 666.
