Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jeremy W. Parham, for the Petitioner, James D. Beaird.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Tracy L. Bradshaw, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Rob McGuire, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Petitioner, James D. Beaird, appeals the Davidson County Criminal Court’s denial of post-conviction relief from his conviction for first degree felony murder and attempted especially aggravated robbery. On appeal, the Petitioner argues that he received ineffective assistance of counsel based upon allegations that Counsel failed to exclude or introduce certain evidence at trial and failed to conduct a reasonable investigation prior to trial. Additionally, he asserts that the cumulative errors made by Counsel entitle him to relief. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
