    Pennsylvania v. Jones

    Opinion Date: September 28, 2012

    Court: Pennsylvania Supreme Court


    Appellant Aaron Jones' third petition for PCRA relief was denied as untimely, and he appealed to the Supreme Court. Appellant was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death for ordering the murder of a rival gang member. After multiple unsuccessful attempts to get PCRA relief, Appellant filed an unsuccessful petition for the writ of habeas corpus. When that too was denied, Appellant filed a third PCRA petition, alleging that he received newly-discovered evidence and that his untimely petition should be excepted from the PCRA's timeliness requirement. Upon review, the Supreme Court found no merit to Appellant's arguments, and ruled that his petition was clearly untimely and properly dismissed by the PCRA court.
