People v. White

Supreme Court of Michigan

December 23, 2014

PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, Plaintiff-Appellee,
v.
KENTREZE DEMETRIOUS WHITE, Defendant-Appellant

COA: 320151. Kent CC: 11-008469-FC.

Robert P. Young, Jr., Chief Justice. Michael F. Cavanagh, Stephen J. Markman, Mary Beth Kelly, Brian K. Zahra, Bridget M. McCormack, David F. Viviano, Justices.

OPINION

Order

On order of the Court, the application for leave to appeal the March 26, 2014 order of the Court of Appeals is considered and, pursuant to MCR 7.302(H)(1), in lieu of granting leave to appeal, we REMAND this case to the Kent Circuit Court for the appointment of substitute appellate counsel, in light of Halbert v Michigan, 545 U.S. 605; 125 S.Ct. 2582; 162 L.Ed.2d 552 (2005). Based on our review of the record, the circuit court granted original appointed appellate counsel's motion to withdraw, but denied the defendant's request for the appointment of substitute appellate counsel. On remand, substitute appellate counsel, once appointed, may file an application for leave to appeal in the Court of Appeals for consideration under the standard for direct appeals, and/or any appropriate postconviction motions in the circuit court, within six months of the date of the circuit court's order appointing counsel. Counsel may include among the issues raised, but is not required to include, the issues raised by the defendant in his motion for relief from judgment that was filed in 2013.

We do not retain jurisdiction.
