Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Jul 3, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

James O. Martin, III, Nashville, Tennessee (on appeal); and Kristen Vanderkooi, Nashville, Tennessee (at post-conviction hearing), for the appellant, Ralph Paul Marcrum.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; Victor S. Johnson, District Attorney General; and Bret Thomas Gunn, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Petitioner, Ralph Paul Marcrum, appeals as of right from the Davidson County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief challenging his guilty plea to one count of aggravated burglary. The Petitioner contends that his guilty plea was not knowingly and voluntarily entered because he received ineffective assistance from his trial counsel. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
