Last Waltz

A foreign national convicted on a plea of guilty to aggravated sexual battery claimed that he received ineffective assistance of counsel and that his conviction violated the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. The Tennessee Supreme Court held that the contentions were time-barred. The petitioner's inability to read or write in English did not toll the time for seeking post-conviction relief. (Mike Frisch)
