Posted by: Landry Butler on Nov 14, 2016

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

H. Garth Click, Springfield, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Jeffery W. Dean.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Andrew C. Coulam, Assistant Attorney General; John Wesley Carney, Jr., District Attorney General; and Jason White, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Petitioner, Jeffery W. Dean, filed for post-conviction relief from his convictions of aggravated kidnapping and carjacking, alleging that his trial counsel was ineffective by failing to explain the State's evidence against the Petitioner and counsel's trial strategy and by failing to prepare the Petitioner to testify at trial. The post-conviction court denied the petition, and the Petitioner appeals. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
