U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
JAMES KARROLL JACKSON,
STATE OF ALABAMA, et al.,
Case No.: 7:17-cv-01119-LSC-TMP
This is an action for a writ of habeas corpus action filed by petitioner James
Karroll Jackson, pro se, on or about June 29, 2017. (Doc. 1). The petitioner
challenges his 1982 conviction for burglary 2nd degree and life sentence. (Id., at 2).
On July 17, 2018, the magistrate judge to whom the case was referred entered a
report and recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), recommending that
habeas relief be denied. (Doc. 13). Although the petitioner was notified of his
right to file objections within fourteen (14) days, no objections have been filed
with the court.
Having carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the
court file, including the magistrate judge’s Report and Recommendation, the court
is of the opinion that the magistrate judge’s findings are due to be and are hereby
ADOPTED and his recommendation is ACCEPTED. Accordingly, the petition
for writ of habeas corpus is due to be DENIED and DISMISSED WITH
Further, because the petition does not present issues that are
debatable among jurists of reason, a certificate of appealability is also due to be
DENIED. See 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c); Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484-85
(2000); Rule 11(a), Rules Governing § 2254 Proceedings. A separate Final Order
will be entered.
DONE and ORDERED on August 10, 2018.
L. Scott Coogler
United States District Judge
