Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

George Morton Googe, District Public Defender, and Susan D. Korsnes, Assistant District Public Defender, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Andrew Taylor.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Katherine Redding, Assistant Attorney General; Jerry Woodall, District Attorney General; and Nina Seiler, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The Petitioner, Andrew Taylor, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief in which he challenged his guilty pleas to carjacking and aggravated robbery and his effective sentence of eight years in prison at eighty-five percent. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that he was denied his right to the effective assistance of counsel, which rendered his pleas unknowing and involuntary. We affirm the post-conviction court’s denial of relief.
