Posted by: Landry Butler on Mar 8, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

David M. Hopkins, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Quanya Revell Prewitt.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Brent C. Cherry, Senior Counsel; Glenn R. Funk, District Attorney General; and Megan King, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Petitioner, Quanya Revell Prewitt, filed a petition for post-conviction relief, alleging various claims of ineffective assistance of counsel. The post-conviction court denied relief, and the Petitioner appeals. Upon review, we conclude that because of the post-conviction court's failure to comply with the mandates of section 9(D)(1)(b)(i) of Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 28, we are compelled to reverse the denial of post-conviction relief and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
