Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Assistant Attorney General; James G. Woodall, District Attorney General; Al Earls, Assistant District Attorney General; and Shaun A. Brown, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, the State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Petitioner, Jermaine Mitchell Gray, was found guilty by a Madison County jury of aggravated robbery, and he was subsequently sentenced to serve 12 years as a Range I standard offender. This court affirmed the conviction, and our supreme court denied Petitioner’s application for permission to appeal. State v. Jermaine Mitchell Gray, No. W2009-01260-CCA-R3-CD, 2010 WL 4544395 (Tenn. Crim. App. Nov. 10, 2010) perm. app. denied (Tenn. April 13, 2011). He subsequently filed a petition for post-conviction relief which was denied by the trial court following an evidentiary hearing. Petitioner appeals asserting that the trial court erred by denying him post-conviction relief because his trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance of counsel. We affirm the judgment of the trial court which denied postconviction relief.
