Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ryan C. Caldwell, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Archie T. Wilson.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith Devault, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Hugh Ammerman, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

In 2011, the Petitioner, Archie T. Wilson, pled guilty to attempted aggravated rape and attempted aggravated kidnapping, and the trial court sentenced him to a twenty-year effective sentence. The trial court also ordered that the Petitioner register as a sex offender and be placed on community supervision for life. The Petitioner filed a petition for post conviction relief, which the post-conviction court dismissed after a hearing. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that his guilty pleas were not knowingly and voluntarily entered and that he had received the ineffective assistance of counsel. After a thorough review of the record and applicable authorities, we conclude that the post-conviction court did not err when it dismissed the petition. The post-conviction court’s judgment is, therefore, affirmed.
