Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kevin Anthony Dickson Junior, Wartburg, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; James Dunn, District Attorney General; and George Ioannides, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): EASTER

Petitioner, Kevin Anthony Dickson Junior, appeals the denial of his petition for post- conviction relief. Petitioner?s primary contention is that the trial court lacked jurisdiction because he is a sovereign citizen who is not subject to the laws of the State of Tennessee, though he also includes an allegation of ineffective assistance of counsel as well as other alleged constitutional violations. Upon our review of the record, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
