Posted by: Landry Butler on May 17, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Monica A. Timmerman, Bartlett, Tennessee, for the Defendant-Appellant, Henry Bates.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Stacy McEndree, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The petitioner, Henry Bates, was convicted by a Shelby County jury of aggravated robbery, burglary of a building, and vandalism of $1000 or more, for which he received an effective sentence of forty-two years’ imprisonment. He now appeals the post-conviction court’s denial of relief arguing that trial counsel was ineffective in failing to present an alibi witness at trial. Upon our review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
