  7. Fields v. State (2001)

    The sole issue in this appeal is whether our decision in State v. Burns, 6 S.W.3d 453 (Tenn.1999), changed the standard by which appellate courts review denials of post-conviction relief based on allegations of ineffective assistance of counsel. The Court of Criminal Appeals in this case affirmed the denial of the appellant's post-conviction petition, although it expressed concern that this Court inadvertently changed the standard of appellate review in Burns to require a de novo review of a [...]

    We granted permission to appeal in this case to determine whether challenges to the voluntariness of guilty pleas may properly be advanced in state habeas corpus proceedings. Our examination of the history of the writ of habeas corpus in Tennessee leads us to the conclusion that the reach of the Great Writ is severely restricted in this state and would, in almost all instances, preclude consideration of challenges to the voluntariness of guilty pleas in such proceedings. We thus affirm the [...]
