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.
Supreme Court of Illinois.
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.
