Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jessica C. McAfee, Greeneville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Steven O. Hughes-Mabry.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Assistant Attorney General; Barry P. Staubus, District Attorney General; Joseph Eugene Perrin, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Petitioner, Steven O. Hughes-Mabry, appeals the Sullivan County Circuit Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief from his convictions of possession of 0.5 gram or more of cocaine with the intent to sell or deliver within 1000' of a school zone, introduction of contraband into a penal institution, and driving on a suspended license, for which he is serving an effective fifteen-year sentence. He contends that the post- conviction court erred in denying relief on his ineffective assistance of counsel claims and that the court erred in excluding evidence relevant to an issue that was not raised in the petitions. We affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
