Posted by: Brittany Sims on Jan 15, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Andrew E. Mills, Dickson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Tina M. Dixon.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; Dan Mitchum Alsobrooks, District Attorney General; and Craig Monsue, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The petitioner, Tina M. Dixon, filed a petition for post-conviction relief, alleging that her trial counsel were ineffective for failing to request a ruling on a motion for additional findings of fact related to a motion to suppress; failing to raise the issue of the trial judge and the prosecutor’s potential conflicts of interest prior to trial; and failing to advise her of a proposed plea agreement. The post-conviction court denied the petition, and the petitioner appeals. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
