Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel E. Willis, Senior Counsel; and T. Michael Bottoms, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): TIPTON

The Petitioner, James Wallie Robertson, appeals the Lawrence County Circuit Court’s summary dismissal of his petition for post-conviction relief from his 1995 guilty pleas to first degree murder, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated burglary, automobile burglary, two counts of forgery, and passing a forged check and his effective sentence of life imprisonment plus twenty-five years. He contends that the trial court erred by summarily dismissing his petition without appointing counsel or holding an evidentiary hearing. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
