Posted by: Landry Butler on Jan 27, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

E. Louis Thomas, Whiteville, Tennessee, Pro Se

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; M. Todd Ridley, Assistant Attorney General, and D. Mike Dunavant, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Petitioner, E. Louis Thomas, appeals the Hardeman County Circuit Court’s summary dismissal of his petition for a writ of habeas corpus from his 2008 conviction for first degree premeditated murder and his life sentence. He contends that (1) he received the ineffective assistance of counsel, (2) the trial court violated his right to a fair trial by admitting the Petitioner’s confession, and (3) the habeas corpus court violated his due process rights by summarily dismissing his petition. We affirm the judgment of the habeas corpus court.
