Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Sep 4, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Emeterio Hernando, Lewisburg, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jerry Lee Hunter.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Charles Frank Crawford, Jr., District Attorney General; and Weakley E. Barnard, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): TIPTON

The Petitioner, Jerry Lee Hunter, appeals the Marshall County Circuit Court’s denial of postconviction relief from his conviction for especially aggravated robbery, for which he is serving an eighteen-year sentence. The Petitioner contends that his entry of a guilty plea was unknowing, involuntary, and unintelligent because he did not receive the effective assistance of counsel. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
