Hoch v. State

Supreme Court of Wyoming

June 26, 2013

JERRY LEE HOCH, Appellant (Defendant),
v.
THE STATE OF WYOMING, Appellee (Plaintiff).

ORDER AFFIRMING THE DISTRICT COURT'S ORDER DENYING MOTION TO WITHDRAW PLEA

MARILYN S. KITE Chief Justice

[¶1] This matter came before the Court upon its own motion following notification that Appellant has not filed a pro se brief within the time allotted by this Court. Pursuant to a plea agreement, Appellant entered a "no contest" plea to one count of second degree murder. Shortly after the "Judgment and Sentence" was entered, Appellant filed a post-sentence motion to withdraw his plea.

That Order notified Appellant that the District Court's "Order Denying Motion to Withdraw Plea" would be affirmed unless, on or before June 7, 2013, Appellant filed a brief that persuaded this Court that the captioned appeal is not wholly frivolous. Taking note that Appellant, Jerry Lee Hoch, has not filed a brief or other pleading within the time allotted, the Court finds that the district court's "Order Denying Motion to Withdraw Plea" should be affirmed. It is, therefore,

[¶2] ORDERED that the District Court's December 12, 2012, "Order Denying Motion to Withdraw Plea" be, and the same hereby ...
