JONATHON FRANK MURPHY v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal procedure –Illegal sentence — Incorrect case number

In 2008, appellant, Jonathon Frank Murphy, pleaded guilty in the Circuit Court for Calvert County to two counts of robbery, and was sentenced to ten years of incarceration for each count. In addition to a number of other post-conviction pleadings, none of which are relevant to this appeal, Murphy filed a pro se motion to correct an illegal sentence on the basis that he was “incorrectly sentenced under a case number that was not assigned to [his] cause.”

Following denial of his motion, he appealed to this Court, asserting error by the circuit court in denying his motion.
