Michael T. Gmoser, Butler County Prosecuting Attorney, Lina N. Alkamhawi, Government Services Center, for plaintiff-appellee
Stanley Brown, #A614-974, Lebanon Correctional Institution, defendant-appellant, pro se
(¶ 1} Defendant-appellant, Stanley Brown, appeals a decision of the Butler County Court of Common Pleas overruling his petition for postconviction relief.
(¶ 2} On September 29, 2011, Brown was convicted of two counts of rape, felonies of the first degree. The first count included a specification that the victim was under ten years of age at the time of the offense. Brown was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after ten years for the first count, to be served concurrently with a ten-year prison term for the second count.
(¶ 3} Brown appealed his convictions and sentence to this court. State v. Brown, 12th Dist. Butler No. CA2011-11-207, 2013-Ohio-1610. While that appeal was pending, Brown filed a petition for postconviction relief on May 21, 2012, seeking to vacate or set aside his conviction and sentence. Neither the state nor the trial court was served with Brown's petition for postconviction relief. On November 1, 2012, Brown filed a motion to supplement his petition. On November 6, 2012, the trial court denied Brown's petition and motion to supplement the petition.
