Posted by: Landry Butler on May 15, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Donna G. Wagner, Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Felton Jackson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Senior Counsel; Tom P. Thompson, Jr., District Attorney General; and Howard L. Chambers, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Petitioner, Felton Jackson, filed a petition in the Wilson County Criminal Court, seeking post-conviction relief from his conviction of especially aggravated robbery. The Petitioner alleged that his trial counsel was ineffective by failing to call alibi witnesses, coercing the Petitioner not to testify, and failing to investigate or present proof regarding the Petitioner’s “social, medical and mental health.” The post-conviction court denied relief, and the Petitioner appealed. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
