Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ernest Lee Jennings, Mountain City, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; and Nicholas W. Spangler, Assistant Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

A jury convicted the petitioner of three counts of rape of a child, a Class A felony, and one count of sexual exploitation of a minor, a Class B felony. In this petition for the writ of habeas corpus, the petitioner alleges that various errors at trial and on post-conviction render his convictions void. The trial court dismissed the petition without a hearing, and the petitioner appeals the dismissal. We conclude that the trial court did not err in dismissing the petition, and we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
