Posted by: Brittany Sims on Mar 25, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen W. Pate, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the Petitioner, Gary Wayne Bush.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Senior Counsel; William C. Whitesell, Jr., District Attorney General; and J. Paul Newman, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Petitioner, Gary Wayne Bush, appeals the Rutherford County Circuit Court?s denial of post-conviction relief. He was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Petitioner argues that he received ineffective assistance of counsel because trial counsel failed to call the Petitioner to testify in his own defense. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
