Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Liddell Kirk, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Dorothy Denise Cross.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; Charme P. Allen, District Attorney General; and Ashley McDermott, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Petitioner, Dorothy Denise Cross, filed a petition for post-conviction relief from her assault conviction, alleging that trial counsel was ineffective by failing to seek a continuance due to the Petitioner’s mental health issues. The post-conviction court denied the petition, and the Petitioner appeals. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
