Attorneys 1:

Anthony Whited, Whiteville, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith Devault, Senior Counsel; Tom P. Thompson, Jr., District Attorney General; and Brian W. Fuller, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The petitioner, Anthony Whited, appeals the summary dismissal of his pro se petition for post-conviction relief, arguing that he presented a colorable claim for relief and that he should, therefore, have been afforded the assistance of post-conviction counsel and an evidentiary hearing. We agree. Accordingly, we reverse the judgment of the post-conviction court and remand for the appointment of post-conviction counsel and an evidentiary hearing.
