Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael Gene Anderson and Matthew Grosland, Assistant District Public Defenders, for the appellant, Forrest David Agostinho.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson III, District Attorney General; and Tara Wyllie and Eric Mauldin, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The petitioner, Forrest David Agostinho, appeals the denial of his petition for post- conviction relief, which challenged his 2012 convictions of 14 counts of aggravated sexual battery, five counts of Class B felony sexual exploitation of a minor, and one count of Class D felony sexual exploitation of a minor. In this appeal, the petitioner asserts that the post-conviction court denied him a full and fair hearing on his post- conviction petition and that he was denied the effective assistance of counsel at trial. Discerning no error, we affirm the denial of post-conviction relief.
