John H. Brichetto, Jr., Pro Se, Pikeville, Tennessee.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Robert W. Wilson, Assistant Attorney General; Russell Johnson, District Attorney General; and Tiffany S. Smith, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

The Petitioner, John H. Brichetto, Jr., and his wife were convicted of Class B felony theft of property. The Petitioner was sentenced to ten years’ incarceration. As part of an agreement for a reduced sentence for his wife, the Petitioner executed a written waiver of his right to appeal, his right to file for post-conviction relief, and his right to collaterally attack his conviction. The Petitioner then filed a petition for post-conviction relief. Finding that the waiver was entered knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily, the post- conviction court summarily dismissed the petition. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
