Posted by: Chandra Williams on Aug 18, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Olin J. Baker, Charlotte, Tennessee, for the Defendant-Appellant, Horace E. Hollis, Jr.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Andrew Craig Coulam, Assistant Attorney General; Dan M. Alsobrooks, District Attorney General; and Ray Crouch, Jr., Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Petitioner, Horace E. Hollis, Jr., appeals the Dickson County Circuit Court’s denial of post-conviction relief. The Petitioner was convicted by a jury of two counts of rape of a child for which he received an effective sentence of forty years. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that the post-conviction court erred in dismissing his petition for post- conviction relief without considering the transcript from his trial. Because the transcript from the post-conviction hearing is not included in the record, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
