Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Vicki M. Carriker, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, John Armstrong.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Robert W. Wilson, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Leslie Renee Byrd and Sarah Michelle Poe, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Petitioner, John Armstrong, appeals from the Shelby County Criminal Court’s dismissal of his petition for post-conviction relief. The Petitioner contends (1) that the post-conviction court erred in dismissing his petition for being untimely filed; and (2) that his guilty pleas were not knowingly and voluntarily entered due to the ineffective assistance of his trial counsel. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
