Entry Denying Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus and Denying Certificate of Appealability - For the reasons explained in this Entry, Harold Wayne Reynolds' petition for a writ of habeas corpus is denied. In addition, the Court finds that a certificate of appealability should not issue. "[H]abeas corpus has its own peculiar set of hurdles a petitioner must clear before his claim is properly presented to the district court." Keeney v. Tamayo-Reyes, 504 U.S. 1, 14 (1992) (O'Connor, J., dissenting) (internal citations omitted). Reynolds has encountered the hurdle produced by the one-year statute of limitations. He has not shown the existence of circumstances permitting him to overcome this hurdle, and hence is not entitled to the relief he seeks. His petition for a writ of habeas corpus is therefore denied with prejudice. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. The Court further denies a certificate of appealability. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 4/19/2018.(APD)
