Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jeffrey D. Johnson, Johnson City, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jeremy Curtis Workman.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Senior Counsel; Dan E. Armstrong, District Attorney General; and Cecil Clayton Mills, Jr., Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.


A Greene County jury convicted the Petitioner, Jeremy Curtis Workman, of five counts of rape of a child and two counts of incest, and the trial court sentenced him to serve twenty-five years, at 100%, followed by twelve years, at 30%. This Court affirmed the Petitioner?s convictions. State v. Jeremy Workman, No. E2010-02278-CCA-R3-CD, 2011 WL 6210667 (Tenn. Crim. App., at Knoxville, Dec. 13, 2011), perm. app. denied (Tenn. Aug. 16, 2012). The Petitioner filed a petition for post-conviction relief in which he alleged, inter alia, that his trial counsel failed to present a defense by not presenting witnesses on the Petitioner?s behalf and by failing to subpoena Dr. Chang, a doctor who examined the victim and who the Petitioner asserts gave “different conclusions.” After a hearing, the post-conviction court denied the Petitioner relief. We affirm the post- conviction court?s judgment.
