Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Gary K. Thomas, Talladega, Alabama, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; and Leslie E. Price, Senior Counsel, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Petitioner, Gary K. Thomas, appeals from the summary dismissal of his petition for post- conviction relief attacking his January 2005 conviction for simple assault. The Petitioner’s August 2012 petition for post-conviction relief, alleging that his trial counsel was ineffective and that his plea was not voluntary, was dismissed as untimely. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that trial counsel was ineffective for failing to file an appeal after he requested such action. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
