Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

James John Lewis, Nashville, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; and Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): BIVINS

James John Lewis (“the Petitioner”), proceeding pro se, filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, alleging that the trial court erred in not investigating the medications the Petitioner was taking when he entered his guilty plea and accordingly erred in accepting the Petitioner’s guilty plea. The habeas corpus court summarily denied relief, and this appeal followed. Upon review, we affirm the habeas corpus court’s judgment pursuant to Rule 20 of the Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals.
