Posted by: Landry Butler on Feb 17, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

M. Wesley Hall IV, Jr., Unionville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Austin Myles Tomlin.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; Robert J. Carter, District Attorney General; and Michael D. Randels, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Petitioner, Austin Myles Tomlin, pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide by intoxication, and the trial court sentenced him to ten years for each count, to be served consecutively. The Petitioner filed a petition for post-conviction relief, which the post- conviction court denied after a hearing. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that the post-conviction court erred when it dismissed his petition because his trial counsel was ineffective for failing to properly advise him regarding his guilty plea. After review, we affirm the post-conviction court’s judgment.
