Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Apr 19, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Lance R. Chism (on appeal) and TeShaun D. Moore (at hearing), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Aaron Malone.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Zachary T. Hinkle, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Kenya N. Smith and Karen Cook, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The petitioner, Aaron Malone, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief from his conviction for first degree felony murder. He asserts that the court erred in denying relief because he received the ineffective assistance of counsel and his due process rights were violated by the State’s failing to preserve unedited footage from “The First 48” television show. After review, we affirm the denial of the petition.
