STATE OF TENNESSEE v. PETER GEORGE CREHAN

Court:TCCA

Attorneys:

Charles S. Bloodworth, Assistant Public Defender (at trial); and
Thomas L. Whiteside (on appeal), Nashville, Tennessee, for the
appellant, Peter George Crehan.

Paul G. Summers, Attorney General and Reporter; Marvin E. Clements,
Jr., Assistant Attorney General; John Wesley Carney, Jr., District
Attorney General; B. Dent Morris and Joel W. Perry, Assistant District
Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.                          

Judge: RILEY

First Paragraph:

The defendant was convicted by a Robertson County jury of driving
under the influence ("DUI"), third offense, and reckless driving. 
Defendant claims on appeal that the trial court erred by (1)
sustaining his conviction for DUI, third offense, despite the
indictment's failure to allege the specific court in Davidson County
where he received his two prior DUI convictions; and (2) the evidence
was insufficient to sustain his conviction for reckless driving. 
After a through review of the record, we affirm the judgment of the
trial court.
