DAUGHTREY, Judge. OPINION This case is before us on appeal from an order of the Shelby County Criminal Court denying appellant's post-conviction petition after an evidentiary hearing in the trial court. The appellant was convicted in the same court on January 27, 1971 of burglary in the second degree and sentenced to serve three to eight years in the penitentiary. This motion for a new trial was overruled on February 26, 1971 and on March 11, 1971 he was declared indigent and granted an appeal from the judgment of conviction. However, the technical record fails to show whether an attorney was appointed to represent him at that time and thus we must assume despite this determination of indigency that his retained counsel continued to represent him on appeal. The judgment of the trial court was affirmed in an opinion of the Court of Criminal Appeals filed on February 24, 1972 (Harold Ray Moultrie v. State of Tennessee, Shelby County No. 53). No petition for certiorari to the Tennessee Supreme Court was filed by Moultrie or by his attorney on his behalf, and it is this circumstance of which he now complains.
