Posted by: Chandra Williams on Dec 2, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Elaine Heard, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Cayetano Flores.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; and Rachel Sobrero, Special Prosecutor, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): EASTER

Petitioner, Cayetano Flores, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. He argues that his trial counsel provided ineffective assistance by operating under a conflict of interest, inadequately discussing various aspects of the case and the details of the plea agreement, and failing to file a motion to sever. After a careful review of the record, we affirm the prost-conviction court’s denial of post-conviction relief.
