It seems that Jonesboro gunman Mitchell Johnson is trying to get out of his well deserved but not nearly long enough sentence.

Last week Johnson had a motion denied where he claimed that he had ineffectual counsel in his convictions on drugs and weapons charges.

For those of you who may not know Johnson was one of the gunmen in the infamous Jonesboro school shooting. At that time the state of Arkansas could not hold Johnson past adulthood due to a now-closed loophole in the law.

Johnson was arrested in 2008 on not only weapons and drug charges but also fraud charges. He was sentenced to 12 years.
