Beschreibung des Verlags

On April 14, 1965, defendant Phillip Dean Eldredge pleaded guilty in the circuit court of Edgar County to armed robbery and
was sentenced to 10-30 years imprisonment. A pro se post-conviction petition was filed on April 14, 1967, to which was attached
as an exhibit a transcript of the proceedings on the plea of guilty. Counsel was appointed, the petition amended by defendant
and the State's motion to dismiss was subsequently allowed. From the order dismissing the petition this appeal is taken. Defendant filed numerous pro se pleadings in the trial court post-conviction proceedings in which he was represented by appointed
counsel of his own choice. In addition to the brief filed on his behalf by appointed counsel in this appeal, defendant has
filed a pro se "reply brief". Numerous questions are raised regarding the constitutional validity of the trial court proceedings,
and, while the trial court apparently considered the allegations of the post-conviction petition insufficient to necessitate
an evidentiary hearing, it is also apparent from the order of dismissal that the merits of the allegations were considered
and determined by reference to the transcript.
