Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Liddell Kirk, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Demetrius Wynn.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Senior Counsel; Randall E. Nichols, District Attorney General; and Philip H. Morton, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The petitioner, Demetrius Wynn, filed in the Knox County Criminal Court a petition for postconviction relief from his guilty plea to possession of less than .5 grams of cocaine with the intent to sell. He alleged that his trial counsel was ineffective and that his guilty plea was not knowingly and voluntarily entered. The post-conviction court denied relief, and the petitioner appeals. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
