Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Jul 6, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen M. Wallace, District Public Defender; and Andrew Kennedy, Assistant Public Defender, for the appellant, Timothy L. Rose.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Assistant Attorney General; Barry Staubus, District Attorney General; and Joseph E. Perrin, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

Seeking relief from the Sullivan County Criminal Court’s dismissal of his petition for postconviction relief from his 2008 conviction of attempted aggravated robbery, Timothy L. Rose appeals and claims that his plea of guilty to the conviction offense is invalid because it was the product of ineffective assistance of counsel and was unknowingly and involuntarily made. The record, however, supports the post-conviction court’s findings and its denial of post-conviction relief. For that reason, we affirm the post-conviction court’s denial of relief.
