Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael E. Scholl, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Fredrick Milan.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; Stephanie Johnson, Assistant District Attorney General; Betsy Weintraub, Assistant District Attorney General; and Marline Iverson, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, the State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Petitioner, Fredrick Milan, appeals the dismissal of his petition for post-conviction relief in which he alleged that he received ineffective assistance of trial counsel. More specifically he contends that (1) trial counsel failed to convey a twenty-five year offer by the State; and (2) trial counsel failed to call certain witnesses to testify at trial. After a thorough review of the record, we conclude that Petitioner has failed to show that his trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance of counsel, and we accordingly affirm the judgment of the postconviction court.
