Posted by: Chandra Williams on Sep 28, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Gregory P. Isaacs and J. Franklin Ammons, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the Petitioner, Cody Cofer.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Senior Counsel; Randall A. York, District Attorney General; and Amanda Worley, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Petitioner, Cody Cofer, appeals from the denial of post-conviction relief by the Circuit Court for Cumberland County. He was convicted of two counts of felony murder and one count of attempted especially aggravated robbery, for which he received consecutive life sentences and a concurrent twelve-year sentence. On appeal, the Petitioner argues that he received ineffective assistance of counsel at both the trial and appellate levels. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
