We are of the opinion that the record in this case establishes that the sentence imposed on the applicant for the writ of habeas corpus by the state court is invalid and his detention thereunder unlawful, but that the infirmity in the sentence does not extend to applicant's plea of guilty. Therefore, the order is reversed and the cause remanded, with instructions to enter an order discharging the applicant from custody under the sentence, but staying its effectiveness for 30 days to enable the state if it is so advised to take applicant before the state court in which his plea of guilty was entered for the imposition of valid sentence.
