Posted by: Landry Butler on Apr 13, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Nicholas Spring Davenport, V, Morristown, Tennessee, for the appellant, Mary L. Vaughn.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Robert W. Wilson, Assistant Attorney General; James O. Phillips, District Attorney General; and M. Ryan Blackwell and Cecil C. Mills, Jr., Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The petitioner, Mary L. Vaughn, appeals the denial of her petition for post-conviction relief, which petition challenged her 2014 Hawkins County Criminal Court guilty-pleaded convictions of second degree murder and aggravated child abuse, arguing that she was denied the effective assistance of counsel and that her guilty pleas were not knowingly or voluntarily entered. Discerning no error, we affirm the denial of post-conviction relief.
