Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Oct 30, 2013

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

John P. Cauley, Franklin, Tennessee (Post-Conviction); Hershell D. Koger, Pulaski, Tennessee (on appeal); for the Defendant-Appellant, William Darryn Busby.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel, Assistant Attorney General; Kim R. Helper, District Attorney General; and Derek K. Smith, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Petitioner, William Darryn Busby, appeals the Lewis County Circuit Court’s denial of post-conviction relief from his convictions for four counts of rape of a child. In this appeal, the Petitioner argues that he was denied a full and fair hearing by the post-conviction court, that he received ineffective assistance from both trial and appellate counsel, and that the cumulative effect of these errors deprived him of a defense at trial and meaningful appeal. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
