Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Nov 22, 2013

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Andrew M. Bonderud (on appeal) and Samuel Rodriguez, III (at hearing and on appeal), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Robert E. Bonds Peeples.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; Marlinee Iverson and Stephanie Zander Johnson, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Petitioner, Robert E. Bonds Peeples, appeals as of right from the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. The Petitioner contends that he received ineffective assistance of counsel because his trial counsel failed to secure an expert witness to testify regarding the reliability of eyewitness identification. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
