Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Terrell L. Tooten, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Eric Bledsoe.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Marianne L. Bell, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Petitioner, Eric Bledsoe, appeals as of right from the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief, wherein he challenged his conviction for aggravated rape, aggravated burglary, and theft of property valued at $1,000 or more but less than $10,000. See Tenn. Code Ann. §§ 39-13-502; -14-103; -14-403. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that his attorney provided ineffective assistance of counsel by failing to call potential defense witnesses during trial and failing to adequately investigate the Petitioner’s mental health history. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
