Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joshua B. Dougan, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Michael Allen Gibbs.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Nicholas W. Spangler, Assistant Attorney General; Garry Brown, District Attorney General; and Mark C. Hazelwood and Jerald M. Campbell, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The petitioner, Michael Allen Gibbs, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief from his first degree felony murder, aggravated burglary, and attempted especially aggravated robbery convictions. He asserts that the post-conviction court erred in denying his petition because he received ineffective assistance of counsel in that counsel did not thoroughly advise him regarding a plea offer and the proof needed to convict him. After review, we affirm the denial of the petition.
