Posted by: Landry Butler on Nov 17, 2016

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Patrick M. Brooks (on appeal and at hearing) and Josie S. Holland (on appeal), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Marvin Davis.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Caitlin E.D. Smith, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; Dru Carpenter, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Petitioner, Marvin Davis, appeals the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief from his rape of a child conviction, for which he is serving a twenty-five-year sentence. He contends that he received the ineffective assistance of counsel and that the post-conviction judge erred in denying the Petitioner’s motion to recuse. We affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
