Posted by: Landry Butler on Mar 22, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kyle Mothershead, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Tony Wolfe.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Robert W. Wilson, Assistant Attorney General; Amy Weirich, District Attorney General; for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Petitioner, Tony Wolfe, appeals from the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of his motion to reopen his post-conviction petition on the basis of newly discovered scientific mental health evidence. He contends that the post-conviction court erred in denying his motion without conducting a hearing on the merits. Because the Petitioner has no appeal as of right from the denial of a motion to reopen and did not follow the procedure required for seeking permission to appeal, we dismiss the appeal.
