Paul G. Summers, Attorney General & Reporter; Blind Akrawi, Assistant Attorney General; Robert Radford, District Attorney General; and John W. Overton, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.
The Defendant, Gay N. Yarbro, was convicted by a jury of introducing a controlled substance into a penal institution. The trial court sentenced the Defendant as a Range II, multiple offender to eight years in the Department of Correction for this offense, to be served consecutively to a sentence for a prior conviction. Additionally, the trial court revoked the Defendant‚s community corrections sentence for the prior conviction and ordered him to serve the original sentence in confinement. In this direct appeal, the Defendant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting his conviction for introducing a controlled substance into a penal institution and further challenges the length of his sentence for that offense. The Defendant also challenges the trial court‚s revocation of his community corrections sentence on the prior conviction. We affirm the judgment of the trial court as to the instant conviction, and further affirm the trial court‚s order of revocation.
