Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Valentine Darker, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Wendell Guinn.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jonathan H. Wardle, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Carrie Shelton Bush and Leslie Fouche, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Petitioner, Wendell Guinn, appeals from the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. The Petitioner contends (1) that his constitutional rights were violated by prosecutorial misconduct during the jury voir dire and the State’s closing arguments; (2) that the trial court committed several errors in the jury instructions; and (3) that he received ineffective assistance from his trial and appellate counsel. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
