No. 88474.

793 N.E.2d 1 (2001)

205 Ill.2d 247

275 Ill.Dec. 521

The PEOPLE of the State of Illinois, Appellee, v. Lawrence JACKSON, Appellant.

Supreme Court of Illinois.

Rehearing Denied April 1, 2002.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Stephen E. Eberhardt, Crestwood, and Eric J. Bell, Chicago, for appellant.

James E. Ryan, Attorney General, Springfield, and Richard A. Devine, State's Attorney, Chicago (William L. Browers, Assistant Attorney General, Chicago, and Renee Goldfarb and Linda Woloshin, Assistant State's Attorneys, of counsel), for the People.

Justice McMORROW delivered the opinion of the court.

Defendant, Lawrence Jackson, appeals from an order of the circuit court of Cook County dismissing his amended petition for post-conviction relief without an evidentiary hearing. Because defendant was sentenced to death for his underlying convictions, his appeal lies directly with this court. 134 Ill.2d R. 651(a). For the reasons that follow, we affirm the dismissal of defendant's post-conviction petition.
