Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Eric Mogy, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Terrance Heard.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence Lutz, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Greg Gilbert, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The petitioner, Terrance Heard, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief, which petition challenged his August 2001 Shelby County Criminal Court jury convictions of first degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping. Because the petitioner failed to prepare an adequate record for our review, we presume the ruling of the post-conviction court is correct and, therefore, affirm the judgment of the post- conviction court.
