STATE OF TENNESSEE v. JEFFERY WAYNE ROBERTSON Court:TCCA Attorneys: Hershell D. Koger, Pulaski, Tennessee (on appeal); Claudia S. Jack, District Public Defender; and Shipp R. Weems, Assistant District Public Defender (at trial), for the appellant, Jeffery Wayne Robertson. Paul G. Summers, Attorney General and Reporter; John H. Bledsoe, Assistant Attorney General; T. Michel Bottoms, District Attorney General; and Robert C. Sanders, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee. Judge: GLENN First Paragraph: The defendant was found guilty of first degree premeditated murder by a Lawrence County jury and sentenced to life imprisonment. In his appeal, he argues that the evidence was insufficient to support the conviction, the trial court erred in allowing opinion testimony of a lay witness based on an experiment regarding the canning of green beans in a pressure cooker, and erred by allowing the statements of three witnesses to be read aloud by the witnesses to the jury and then become exhibits. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCCA/robertsonjeffery1.wpd
