Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Petitioner, Gregory D. Valentine, appeals the Sumner County Criminal Court’s summary dismissal of his pro se petition for post-conviction relief as waived or previously determined. The State responds that the post-conviction court properly dismissed the Petitioner’s claims without a hearing. Upon review, we reverse and remand for further proceedings with regard to the Petitioner’s ineffective assistance of counsel claim.
