J. Liddell Kirk, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Heather McMurry.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Senior Counsel; Charme P. Allen, District Attorney General; and Philip H. Morton, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Petitioner, Heather McMurry, appeals the post-conviction court's denial of her petition for post-conviction relief from her convictions of numerous drug offenses within 1,000 feet of a school zone and resulting effective twelve-year sentence with a mandatory eight years to be served in confinement. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that she received the ineffective assistance of trial counsel. Based upon the record and the parties' briefs, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
