Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joseph O. McAfee, Greeneville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Christopher Kinsler.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Dan Armstrong, District Attorney General; and Kim Morrison, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The petitioner, Christopher Kinsler, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. He argues that he received the ineffective assistance of counsel when trial counsel elicited inadmissible hearsay testimony on cross-examination and then failed to object to the testimony. Following our thorough review, we affirm the judgment of the post- conviction court.
