Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; Glenn Funk, District Attorney General; and Sharon Reddick, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Petitioner, Maria Delaluz Urbano-Uriostegui, filed in the Davidson County Criminal Court a petition for post-conviction relief from her conviction of aggravated child abuse, citing multiple issues, including ineffective assistance of counsel. The post-conviction court summarily dismissed the petition, holding that the issues raised by the Petitioner were previously determined on direct appeal. On appeal, the Petitioner challenges the post-conviction court’s ruling. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post- conviction court.
