STATE OF TENNESSEE v. LISA ANN BARGO

Court:TCCA

for the appellant, Lisa Ann Bargo.

Paul G. Summers, Attorney General and Reporter, R. Stephen Jobe,
Assistant Attorney General, H. Greeley Wells, Jr., District Attorney
General, Teresa Murray Smith, Assistant District Attorney General, for
the appellee, State of Tennessee.                          

Judge: WITT

First Paragraph:

Defendant Lisa Ann Bargo was convicted by a jury of one count of
forgery, one count of attempt to commit theft over $10,000, and one
count of criminal impersonation.  The trial court subsequently set
aside the jury verdicts on the attempt to commit theft and the
criminal impersonation charges and sentenced the defendant on her
forgery conviction to ten years as a Range II multiple offender to be
served in the Department of Correction.  In this appeal, the defendant
challenges the sufficiency of the convicting evidence and the length
of the sentence.  We affirm the defendant's conviction and sentence.
