State vs. Anthony Jerome Stokes
E1999-00953-CCA-R3-CD
Authoring Judge: Judge Alan E. Glenn
Trial Court Judge: Douglas A. Meyer
The defendant entered guilty pleas in 1995 to one count of murder in the first degree and one count of murder in the second degree, the sentences to be served consecutively. In 1997, he testified as a prosecution witness at the trial of a co-defendant in the homicide cases. In 1999, he filed a petition to enforce an alleged agreement with the State that he would be resentenced to concurrent sentences in exchange for this testimony. The trial court denied the petition and he timely appealed. Based upon our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.

Joe Shepherd vs. State
E2004-00290-CCA-R3-HC
Authoring Judge: Judge Norma McGee Ogle
Trial Court Judge: Robert E. Cupp
The pro se petitioner, Joe Shepherd, appeals the dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus. The state has filed a motion requesting that this court affirm the action of the trial court pursuant to Rule 20, Tenn. Ct. Crim. App. R. The petition fails to present a cognizable claim for habeas corpus relief. Accordingly, the state's motion is granted and the judgment of the trial court is affirmed.

Ricky Lee Beamon vs. State
E1999-00614-CCA-R3-CD
Authoring Judge: Judge Alan E. Glenn
Trial Court Judge: Douglas A. Meyer
This appeal arises from the trial court's denial of the petitioner's post-conviction petition. On December 1, 1996, the petitioner was found guilty by a Hamilton County jury of aggravated burglary and theft over $500. The convictions were affirmed on appeal. On August 4, 1997, the petitioner filed a pro se petition for post-conviction relief, which was denied by the trial court after an evidentiary hearing. The petitioner now appeals the denial of his petition. After careful review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.

Sevier County Court of Criminal Appeals 04/17/95
State vs. Marcus Terry
W2000-01747-CCA-R3-PC
Authoring Judge: Judge David G. Hayes
Trial Court Judge: Arthur T. Bennett
The Appellant, Marcus A. Terry, appeals the dismissal of his petition for post-conviction relief. Terry is currently serving a thirty-year sentence as a result of two convictions by a Shelby County jury for vehicular homicide. On appeal, Terry asserts: (1) that he received ineffective assistance of counsel at trial; and (2) that the trial court erred by failing to instruct the jury that he could potentially receive consecutive sentences for his multiple convictions. After review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
