Posted by: Barry Kolar on Jun 6, 2014

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Gregory D. Smith, Nashville, Tennessee (on appeal); and Dominic Leonardo, Nashville, Tennessee (at hearing), for the appellant, Kenneth L. Peachman.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel Harmon, Assistant Attorney General; John Wesley Carney, Jr., District Attorney General; and Helen O. Young, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The petitioner, Kenneth L. Peachman, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief, which challenged his 2007 Montgomery County Circuit Court guilty-pleaded convictions of second degree murder and solicitation of first degree murder, claiming that the ineffective assistance of his trial counsel rendered his guilty pleas unknowing and involuntary.1 Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
