IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO. 4:14CV00204 JM-JTK
WENDY KELLEY1, Director
Arkansas Department of Correction
The Court has received proposed findings and recommendations from United States
Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney.2
After careful review of the findings and
recommendations and the timely objections thereto, as well as a de novo review of the
record, the Court concludes that the findings and recommendations should be, and are
hereby, approved and adopted as this Court’s findings in all respects in their entirety.
Judgment shall be entered accordingly.
The Court will not issue a certificate of appealability because Petitioner has not made
a substantial showing of a denial of a constitutional right. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1)-(2).
SO ORDERED this 27th day of April, 2015.
Wendy Kelley replaced Roy Hobbs as Director of the Arkansas Department of
Correction. Under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 25(d), Wendy Kelley is automatically
substituted as Respondent in this matter.
The Court is adopting the corrected findings and recommendations which reflect the
fact that Petitioner pled guilty to first degree battery in Columbia County instead of Pulaski
County. This correction has no bearing on the legal analysis of the petition.
