Court of Appeals of Missouri, Eastern District, Second Division
March 10, 2014
JIMMY BELL, Movant/Appellant,
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Cape Girardeau County. 13CG-CC00235. Honorable William L. Syler.
FOR APPELLANT: Gwenda Renee Robinson, Missouri Public Defender Office, St. Louis, MO.
FOR RESPONDENT: Chris Koster, Attorney General, Andrew C. Hooper, Assistant Attorney General, Jefferson City, MO.
Before Sherri B. Sullivan, P.J., Mary K. Hoff, J., and Philip M. Hess, J.
Jimmy Bell (Movant) appeals from the motion court's Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law on Movant's Amended Motion to Vacate, Set Aside, or Correct Judgment and Sentence denying Movant's Rule 29.15 claims for post-conviction relief. We affirm.
We have reviewed the briefs of the parties, the legal file, and the record on appeal and find the claims of error to be without merit. No error of law appears. An extended opinion reciting the detailed facts and restating the principles of law applicable to this case would serve no jurisprudential or precedential purpose. We have, however, provided a memorandum opinion for the use of the parties setting forth the reasons for our decision. We affirm the judgment pursuant to Rule 84.16(b).
