Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Nigel Marlin Reid, Sr., pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter, and Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The petitioner, Nigel Marlin Reid, Sr., filed in the Hamblen County Criminal Court various motions, including a motion to reopen, which the court treated as a petition for post-conviction relief. The post-conviction court dismissed the petition, and the petitioner appeals. The State filed a motion requesting that this court affirm the post-conviction court’s denial of relief pursuant to Rule 20, Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals. Upon review of the record and the parties’ briefs, we conclude that the post-conviction court properly dismissed the petition. Accordingly, the State’s motion is granted, and the judgment of the post-conviction court is affirmed.
