Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joseph S. Ozment (on appeal), and Larry Copeland (at post-conviction hearing), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Tamaine Works.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Assistant Attorney General; Amy Weirich, District Attorney General; and Chris West, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): TIPTON

The Petitioner, Tamaine Works, appeals from the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of post-conviction relief from his conviction for first degree premeditated murder and resulting life sentence. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that he did not receive the effective assistance of counsel and that the assistant district attorney general committed prosecutorial misconduct at his trial. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
