Entry Denying Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus and Directing Entry of Final Judgment - The petition of Brent Sangster for a writ of habeas corpus challenges prison disciplinary proceeding number IYC 17-02-0021. For the reasons explained in this Entry, Mr. Sangster's habeas petition is denied. Relief is denied on the assertion that the hearing officer was biased. Habeas corpus is denied on the sufficiency of the evidence aspect of Mr. Sangster's first ground for relief. Ground two also presents a sufficiency of the evidence claim, asserting in different wording the same contentions presented in ground one. For same reasons, therefore, ground two is denied. Ground three is also denied. All three of Mr. Sangster's grounds for habeas corpus relief are meritless and the petition for a writ of habeas corpus is therefore denied. There was no arbitrary action in any aspect of the charge, disciplinary proceedings, or sanctions involved in the events identified in this action, and there was no constitutional infirmity in the proceeding which entitles Mr. Sangster to the relief he seeks. Mr. Sangster's petition for a writ of habeas corpus is denied and this action is dismissed. Final judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. (See Entry). Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 3/14/2018.(APD)
