UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
JOAMI RAY KINDELL,
No. 4:16CV391 DDN
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on the petition of Joami Kindell for a writ of habeas
corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. The petition appears to be barred by the limitations period.
Therefore, the Court will order petitioner to show cause why it should not be summarily
dismissed. See Day v. McDonough, 547 U.S. 198, 210 (2006) (permitting sua sponte dismissal
of untimely petitions after fair notice).
On December 14, 2000, petitioner was convicted by a jury of second-degree murder,
attempted forcible rape, first-degree burglary, and stealing a motor vehicle. Missouri v. Kindell,
No. 22991-02836-01 (St. Louis City). In February 2001 the Court sentenced him to thirty-two
years’ imprisonment. His sentence was affirmed on direct appeal. Missouri v. Kindell, No.
ED79218 (Mo. Ct. App.). He filed a timely motion for postconviction relief under Rule 29.15 of
the Missouri Rules of Criminal Procedure. Kindell v. Missouri, No. 2202P-04226 (City of St.
Louis). And the Missouri Court of Appeals for the Eastern District affirmed on October 21,
2003. Kindell v. Missouri, No. ED82454 (Mo. Ct. App.). The court issued its mandate on
December 9, 2003.
Petitioner filed this action on about March 4, 2016. He argues that the prosecutor
committed misconduct, that his counsel was ineffective, that he was subjected to double
jeopardy, and that the trial court lacked jurisdiction.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2244(d), a petitioner has one year from the date his judgment of
conviction becomes final within which to file a petition for writ of habeas corpus. Assuming that
his conviction became final when the Missouri Court of Appeals issued its mandate on
December 9, 2003, the one-year period expired on December 9, 2004. As a result, the petition
appears is untimely.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner must show cause, no later than twenty-one
(21) days from the date of this Order, why his petition should not be dismissed as time-barred.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that if petitioner fails to comply with this Order, the
Court will dismiss this action without further proceedings.
Dated this 25th day of March, 2016.
