Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Liddell Kirk, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, David Andrew Oliver.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Nicholas W. Spangler, Assistant Attorney General; Charme Allen, District Attorney General; and Rachel Russell, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The Petitioner, David Andrew Oliver, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief in which he challenged his rape of a child conviction and twenty-five year prison sentence. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that he was denied his right to the effective assistance of counsel, arguing that trial counsel should have advised him to testify at trial. We affirm the post-conviction court’s denial of relief.
