Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ieshia Dupes (on appeal) and Harold E. Deaton (at post-conviction hearing), Jamestown, Tennessee, for the appellant, William Carter King.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; William Paul Phillips, District Attorney General; and John W. Galloway, Jr., Deputy District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Petitioner, William Carter King, appeals the Fentress County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief from his 2011 guilty plea to possession of a controlled substance in a penal institution and his five-year sentence. The Petitioner contends that (1) he received the ineffective assistance of counsel and (2) his guilty plea was unknowingly and involuntarily entered. We affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
