Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Phillip L. Davidson, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Martin Lewis Privette.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Senior Counsel; L. Ray Whitley, District Attorney General; and Bryna L. Grant, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): TIPTON

The Petitioner, Martin Lewis Privette, appeals the Sumner County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief from his 2011 conviction for incest and his four-year sentence. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that the trial court applied an impermissible legal standard in determining whether he received the effective assistance of counsel when entering his guilty plea. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
