Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Douglas A. Trant, David M. Eldridge, and Troy S. Weston, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Tommy Joe Owens.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Senior Counsel; Lori Phillips-Jones, District Attorney General; and Scarlett Wynne Ellis, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Petitioner, Tommy Joe Owens, appeals the Campbell County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief from his convictions of two counts of aggravated child abuse and one count of aggravated child neglect and resulting effective twenty-fiveyear sentence. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that he received the ineffective assistance of counsel. Based upon the oral arguments, the record, and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
