Edison v. State

Supreme Court of Arkansas

April 9, 2015

DEONTE EDISON APPELLANT
v.
STATE OF ARKANSAS APPELLEE

MOTION TO BE RELIEVED AS ATTORNEY FOR APPELLANT AND STAY BRIEFING SCHEDULE

PER CURIAM

Appellant Deonte Edison was found guilty after a jury trial of one count of criminal attempt to commit capital murder and two counts of aggravated robbery, with a firearm enhancement on each count. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. An appeal from the judgment has been lodged in this court. Edison is represented on appeal by Julia B. Jackson. Jackson now asks that she be relieved as counsel on the ground that she is ineligible for compensation for services as appellate counsel.

Arkansas Code Annotated § 19-4-1604(b)(2)(B) (Repl. 2007) provides that persons employed as full-time public defenders who are not provided with a state-funded secretary are eligible to seek compensation for appellate work. Counsel affirms that she is a full-time public defender with a full-time, state-funded secretary. Under these circumstances, she is not entitled to be paid for services in this appeal, and her request to be relieved is well-founded. See Craigg v. State, 2012 Ark. 95 (per curiam).

We therefore grant Jackson's motion to be relieved. We appoint attorney Dale Adams to represent the appellant. Our clerk is directed to set a new briefing schedule for the appeal.

Motion granted.
