Green v. Williams
ORDER adopting Report and Recommendations re 13 Report and Recommendations. Petitioner's Objection 14 is overruled. Petitioner's Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus is denied. Ordered by Judge W. Louis Sands on 4/23/2012 (bcl)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
ANDRE BERNARD GREEN,
STANLEY WILLIAMS, Warden,
CASE NO.: 1:11-CV-06 (WLS)
Before the Court is a Recommendation from United States Magistrate Judge Thomas Q.
Langstaff, filed March 12, 2012. (Doc. 13). It is recommended that Petitioner’s Petition for
Writ of Habeas Corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (Doc. 1) be denied. (Id. at 5).
The Recommendation provided the Parties with fourteen (14) days from the date of its
service to file written objections to the recommendations therein. (Id.) The period for objections
expired on Monday, March 26, 2012. (See generally Docket). Petitioner’s Objection to the
Recommendation was not filed until March 28, 2012, with no explanation provided for the delay.
(Doc. 14). As such, it was not timely filed and will not be considered. 1
Upon review and consideration, the objections set forth in Plaintiff’s Objection (Doc. 14)
are OVERRULED, and United States Magistrate Judge Langstaff’s March 12, 2012
Recommendation (Doc. 13) is ACCEPTED, ADOPTED and made the Order of this Court for
reason of the findings made and reasons stated therein together with the reasons stated and
Petitioner’s objections, even if they were timely, are not persuasive. Petitioner’s objections completely fail to
address Petitioner’s failure to exhaust his state remedies and the resulting procedural bar on his claims. Petitioner
also fails to establish that: (1) a fundamental miscarriage of justice would occur if his claims are not heard; or (2)
that cause and actual prejudice exist to excuse the procedural default of his claim. Instead, Petitioner makes
numerous statements relating to the arson charge, renews his allegations of ineffective assistance of counsel, and
states that his due process rights were violated because the jury charges allegedly deviated from the indictment.
None of these statements affect Petitioner’s failure to exhaust his state remedies. Accordingly, this Court finds that
Petitioner’s Objection (Doc. 14) fails to rebut the legally sound recommendation of Judge Langstaff.
conclusions reached herein.
Accordingly, Petitioner’s Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (Doc. 1) is DENIED.
SO ORDERED, this 23rd day of April, 2012.
