Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Jul 25, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

William J. Taylor, Knoxville, Tennessee, for appellant, Alonzo Quawndell Vinson.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith Devault, Assistant Attorney General; Randall E, Nichols, District Attorney General; and Kenneth Irvine, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Petitioner, Alonzo Quawndell Vinson, appeals the post-conviction court’s dismissal of his petition for post-conviction relief following an evidentiary hearing. The sole ground for relief presented at the hearing was that Petitioner’s sentence for aggravated assault, imposed pursuant to a negotiated plea agreement, is illegal, and the judgment of conviction is therefore void. After a thorough review of the record and the briefs, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court pursuant to Rule 20 of the Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals of Tennessee.
