A Cumberland County jury convicted the Petitioner, Joshua Paul Lewis, of two counts of rape of a child and one count of attempted rape of a child, and the trial court sentenced him to serve an effective sentence of twenty-five years. This court affirmed the Petitioner’s convictions and sentence. State v. Joshua Paul Lewis, No. E2014-00918-CCA-R3-CD, 2015 WL 795856 (Tenn. Crim. App., at Knoxville, Feb. 25, 2015), no Tenn. R. App. P. 11 filed. The Petitioner subsequently filed a petition for post-conviction relief, alleging that he received the ineffective assistance of counsel. The post-conviction court held a hearing on the petition and denied relief. We affirm the post-conviction court’s judgment.
