Robert E. Cooper, Jr. Attorney General and Reporter; Clark B. Thorton, Assistant Attorney General; Lawrence Ray Whitley, District Attorney General; Sallie Wade Brown, Assistant District Attorney General for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Attorneys 2:

Mr. Eric Scott Mauldin, Gallatin, Tennessee, for appellant, Timothy William Jelks.

Judge(s): SUMMERS

Timothy William Jelks seeks post-conviction relief from a guilty plea and conviction for aggravated child neglect, a Class A felony. Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-15-402. Jelks claims his counsel failed to advise him properly during his plea bargain and asserts the one (1) year statute of limitations should be tolled due to new constitutional rights established by the United States Supreme Court. Finding no merit to the assertions of the appellant, we affirm the judgment of the Circuit Court in all aspects.
