Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Erik R. Herbert, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Vernon Lavone Roberts.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Senior Counsel; Victor S. Johnson III, District Attorney General; and Rachel Sobrero, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

Vernon Lavone Roberts (“the Petitioner”) appeals from the dismissal of his petition for post-conviction relief. On appeal, the Petitioner argues that he received ineffective assistance of counsel. Upon review, we conclude that the Petitioner?s claim was previously determined by this Court on direct appeal. Consequently, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
