Josie S. Holland, Memphis, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Donald Douglas.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Caitlin Smith, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Carrie Bush, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Petitioner, Donald Douglas, filed a petition for post-conviction relief, alleging that he did not knowingly and voluntarily waive his right to a direct appeal in exchange for a sentence of eight years and that his trial counsel was ineffective. After a hearing, the post-conviction court denied the petition. On appeal, the Petitioner challenges the post- conviction court’s ruling. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
