Lawyer seeks to vacate conviction after death

KoulisMotion Letter.pdf
David Raybin recently filed an appeal with the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals seeking to vacate the conviction of his client, Dr. Christ Koulis, a former plastic surgeon that was convicted of criminally negligent homicide in Franklin, Tennessee (Williamson County) in a case that drew significant media attention.
Mr. Raybin had originally filed an appeal challenging both the sufficiency of the evidence and raising a double jeopardy claim. Dr. Koulis died this past week. Mr. Raybin’s recent appeal seeks to vacate Dr. Koulis’ conviction by reason of death. In Mr. Raybin’s most recent filing he cites the majority rule of law which requires that the appeal be abated and the conviction be vacated.
