Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Courtney N. Orr, Assistant Attorney General; Charme Allen, District Attorney General; and Ashley McDermott, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): DYER

The petitioner, Marvin Hurst, Jr., appeals the denial of his post-conviction petition. The petitioner argues he received ineffective assistance of counsel and that, by his actions, counsel overbore the petitioner’s will resulting in the petitioner pleading guilty rather than going to trial. Following our review, we affirm the denial of the petition.
