NATURE OF THE CASE: CIVIL - POST-CONVICTION RELIEF
¶1. Melissa Webster, who is no longer incarcerated, appeals the dismissal of her post-conviction-relief (PCR) motions. She raises a variety of claims but primarily challenges the effectiveness of her counsel and her classification by the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) as a violent offender. Upon review, we find that the plea colloquy shows Webster was satisfied with her attorney and that Webster failed to adequately support her ineffective-assistance claim.
