Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Apr 7, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jeffrey T. Daigle, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Charles Steven Shivers.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence Lutz, Senior Counsel; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Ben Ford, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The petitioner was convicted by a jury of attempted first degree murder and especially aggravated robbery, both Class A felonies, and sentenced to an aggregate sentence of fortythree years. The petitioner filed a timely post-conviction petition, which was amended by appointed counsel. After conducting a hearing, the post-conviction court denied relief. Postconviction counsel failed to file a timely notice of appeal. Because we do not conclude that the interest of justice requires us to hear the appeal, we dismiss it as untimely.
