SUPREME COURT DISCRETIONARY APPEALS Grants & Denials List

Court: TSC

ADAM BETTS v. STATE OF TENNESSEE

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Charles S. Mitchell, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Adam Betts.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Assistant Attorney General; William S. Gibbons, District Attorney General; and Teresa McCusker, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WILLIAMS

The petitioner, Adam Betts, appeals the Shelby County Criminal Court's denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. The petitioner was convicted of first degree murder and is currently serving a sentence of life imprisonment with the possibility of parole. On appeal, he argues that he was denied his Sixth Amendment right to the effective assistance of counsel, specifically arguing that trial counsel was ineffective in: (1) failing to investigate the case or hire an investigator, to file certain pretrial motions, and to interview witnesses prior to trial; and (2) failing to litigate the motion to suppress the petitioner's statement. After review, the judgment of the post-conviction court is affirmed.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. WILLIE ANDREW COLE

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Michael A. Colavecchio, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Willie Andrew Cole.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Frank Borger-Gilligan, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Amy Eisenbeck, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: GLENN

The defendant, Willie Andrew Cole, was convicted by a Davidson County jury of first degree premeditated murder and tampering with evidence, a Class C felony. He was subsequently sentenced by the trial court as a repeat violent offender to concurrent terms of life without the possibility of parole for the first degree murder conviction and six years for the tampering with evidence conviction, to be served consecutively to a previous life sentence for second degree murder. In a timely appeal to this court, the defendant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence in support of his first degree murder conviction and argues that the trial court erred by admitting evidence of his prior bad acts, not suppressing his statement, denying his motion to relieve trial counsel, and not addressing alleged prosecutorial misconduct. Following our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.

CHARLES GREEN v. STATE OF TENNESSEE

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Barbara Hobock and Cynthia Chandler-Snell, Humboldt, Tennessee, for the appellant, Charles Green.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; Garry G. Brown, District Attorney General; and Jeffrey L. Long and Larry Hardister, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: MCLIN

The petitioner, Charles Green, appeals the judgment of the Gibson County Circuit Court denying post-conviction relief. On appeal, the petitioner argues that he received the ineffective assistance of counsel which caused him to enter an unknowing and involuntary guilty plea. Following our review of the record and the parties' briefs, we affirm the judgment of the court denying post-conviction relief.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. RICKEY E. HUTCHINGS

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

F. Shayne Brasfield, Franklin, Tennessee, for the appellant, Rickey E. Hutchings.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Assistant Attorney General; Kim R. Helper, District Attorney General; and Derek K. Smith, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WELLES

The Defendant, Rickey E. Hutchings, appeals as of right from the Williamson County Circuit Court's revocation of his 1994 probationary sentence for possession of contraband in a penal institution. On June 22, 1998, a warrant was issued against the Defendant, alleging a violation of probation based upon the Defendant's arrest in Gulfport, Mississippi for possession of approximately one hundred pounds of marijuana with the intent to sell. The warrant was not served on the Defendant until November 27, 2007, and was thereafter amended to include additional criminal behavior. On appeal, the Defendant argues that the delay between the issuance of the probation violation warrant and his revocation hearing violated his right to a speedy revocation hearing and, therefore, that the trial court erred by denying his motion to dismiss the warrants. Because the Defendant was denied the right to a speedy probation revocation hearing, the judgment of the trial court is reversed, and the warrants against the Defendant are dismissed.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. DARIUS JONES

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Michael E. Scholl, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Darius Jones.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Matthew Bryant Haskell, Assistant Attorney General; William L. Gibbons, District Attorney General; and P.T. Hoover, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: GLENN

The defendant, Darius Jones, was convicted of one count of first degree felony murder, four counts of aggravated robbery, three counts of attempted especially aggravated robbery, two counts of attempted aggravated robbery, and one count of aggravated burglary. He was sentenced to consecutive sentences of life with the possibility of parole for the felony murder, ten years for each of the aggravated robberies and attempted especially aggravated robberies, and four years for each of the attempted aggravated robberies and the aggravated burglary, for an effective sentence of life plus eighty-one years. On direct appeal, this court affirmed all of the defendant's convictions and his life sentence for the felony murder conviction but remanded for resentencing on the remaining convictions in light of Blakely v. Washington, 542 U.S. 296 (2004). This court also ordered that the trial court revisit the issue of consecutive sentencing and place its specific findings on the record. After being resentenced to life plus fifty-four years, the defendant appeals again, arguing the trial court erred in imposing consecutive sentences. Following our review, we conclude that the trial court did not revisit the issue of consecutive sentencing and place specific findings in the record regarding its determination. Accordingly, we remand this matter a second time for the court to do so.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. JASON M. JUSTICE

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

George M. Googe, District Public Defender, and Paul E. Meyers, Assistant Public Defender, for the appellant, Jason M. Justice.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; James G. (Jerry) Woodall, District Attorney General; and James W. Thompson, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: GLENN

The defendant, Jason M. Justice, was convicted by a Madison County Circuit Court jury of first degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. On appeal, he challenges the sufficiency of the convicting evidence, the trial court's admission of evidence concerning an alleged robbery of the defendant by the victim, and the trial court's admission of text messages between the defendant's girlfriend and another witness. After our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. BRANDON COREY MEDLEY AND THOMAS JACKSON TUCKER

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Melissa L. Thomas, Fayetteville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Brandon Corey Medley. Michael J. Collins, Assistant Public Defender, for the appellant, Thomas Jackson Tucker.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Assistant Attorney General; Charles Crawford, District Attorney General; and Weakley E. Barnard, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WITT

A Marshall County Criminal Court jury found that the defendants, Brandon Corey Medley and Thomas Jackson Tucker, broke into Wesley Carroll's home, assaulted him, and took a handgun from him on March 19, 2007. Mr. Medley was convicted of aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery, and Mr. Tucker was convicted of facilitation of aggravated robbery and facilitation of aggravated burglary. The defendants appeal, challenging the legal sufficiency of the convicting evidence. Discerning no error, we affirm.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. JOSHUA MEEKS

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Dominic J. Leonardo, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Joshua Meeks.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General, and John Zimmerman and Bryan Stepehenson, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: SMITH

Appellant, Joshua Meeks, was convicted of conspiracy to deliver 300 pounds or more of marijuana and possession of more than 70.1 pounds of marijuana with the intent to deliver. He was sentenced to an effective sentence of thirty-four years. Appellant seeks review of the following issues on appeal: (1) whether the trial court erred in admitting evidence obtained via "intercepted communication" allegedly in violation of the Wiretapping and Electronic Surveillance Act of 1994; (2) whether the trial court erred in admitting evidence of prior crimes committed by Appellant; (3) whether the trial court properly instructed the jury; (4) whether the evidence was sufficient to sustain the convictions; (5) whether the sentence is excessive; (6) whether the trial court erred in denying the motion for judgment of acquittal; and (7) whether the trial court should have granted a mistrial after sua sponte increasing Appellant's bond from $40,000 to $250,000. We determine that Appellant is not entitled to relief from his convictions or sentence. Accordingly, the judgments of the trial court are affirmed.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. ANDRE PERKINS

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Robert Wilson Jones, District Public Defender, and Phyllis Aluko, Kathy Kent, and Lisa Kutch, Assistant Public Defenders, for the appellant, Andre Perkins.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Melissa Roberge, Assistant Attorney General; William L. Gibbons, District Attorney General; and Glen Baity, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WILLIAMS

The defendant, Andre Perkins, was convicted by a Shelby County jury of one count of voluntary manslaughter, a Class C felony, and one count of theft of property over $1000, a Class D felony. The trial court subsequently sentenced the defendant as a Range I, standard offender to consecutive sentences of six years and four years for the respective convictions. On appeal, the defendant asserts that: (1) the evidence is insufficient to support the convictions; and (2) the sentences imposed are excessive based upon the erroneous application of enhancement factors, the failure to apply mitigating factors, and the imposition of consecutive sentencing. Following review of the record, we conclude that the evidence is sufficient to support the conviction for voluntary manslaughter, and we affirm that conviction. However, review of the record reveals that the State failed to establish the element of value with regard to the theft conviction. As such, we modify the conviction to one for theft of property less than $500, a Class A misdemeanor, and remand to the trial court for re-sentencing. With regard to the sentence for voluntary manslaughter, we conclude that the trial court erred in its application of two enhancement factors. The record does support the trial court's refusal to apply mitigating factors and its imposition of consecutive sentencing. Nonetheless, because of the errors which occurred in sentencing, we remand the case for re-sentencing in accordance with the principles set forth in this opinion.

http://www.tba2.org/tba_files/TCCA/2009/perkinsa_062209.pdf


STATE OF TENNESSEE v. JOSEPH RAY PINSON

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Rickey W. Griggs and Shana Johnson, Assistant Public Defenders, Somerville, Tennessee, for the defendant-appellant, Joseph Ray Pinson.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Assistant Attorney General; D. Michael Dunavant, District Attorney General; and Bob G. Gray, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: MCMULLEN

A McNairy County jury convicted the Defendant-Appellant, Joseph Ray Pinson ("Pinson"), of rape of a child. The trial court sentenced Pinson to twenty years in confinement to be served at 100%. The sole issue for our review is whether the evidence is sufficient to support the conviction. However, we lack jurisdiction to review this matter because there is no order reflecting the trial court's ruling on Pinson's motion for new trial. Because the record clearly shows the trial court denied Pinson relief, we remand this case for supplementation of the record with an order denying Pinson's motion for new trial.

http://www.tba2.org/tba_files/TCCA/2009/pinsonj_062209.pdf


STATE OF TENNESSEE v. NELSON VEGA PLANA

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Gregory D. Smith, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Nelson Vega Plana.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; and John Carney, District Attorney General; and Helen Young, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: SMITH

After a jury trial, in the Montgomery County Circuit Court, Appellant, Nelson Vega Plana, was convicted of two counts of first degree murder and one count of felony murder. The trial court merged the felony murder conviction with one of the first degree murder convictions. Appellant was sentenced to serve two consecutive life sentences. The trial court denied a motion for new trial. Appellant seeks a review of the following issues on appeal: (1) whether the evidence is sufficient to sustain the convictions where there was, according to Appellant, no proof of premeditation; (2) whether the trial court erred by allowing the jury to consider the testimony of a police detective that violated Appellant's Sixth Amendment right to counsel; and (3) whether the sentences should run concurrently pursuant to Blakely v. Washington, 542 U.S. 296 (2004) and related cases. Initially, we determine that Appellant filed an untimely notice of appeal. However, we waive the untimeliness of the notice in the interest of justice. As to the remaining issues, we determine that the evidence was sufficient to support the convictions; the trial court did not err in admitting the testimony of Detective Green; and Blakely does not apply to consecutive sentencing. Accordingly, Appellant is not entitled to relief, and the judgments of the trial court are affirmed.

JERRY JEROME PRIMM v. STATE OF TENNESSEE
CORRECTION: Appeal number has been changed to M2008-01335-CCA-R3-PC


Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Dumaka Shabazz, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Jerry Jerome Primm.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Michael E. Moore, Solicitor General; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Amy Eisenbeck, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WEDEMEYER

A Davidson County jury convicted the Petitioner, Jerry Jerome Primm, of first-degree felony murder, second-degree murder, and especially aggravated kidnapping. The trial court merged the second degree murder conviction with the felony murder conviction and ordered the Petitioner to serve a life sentence at one hundred percent as a violent offender. For his especially aggravated kidnapping conviction, the trial court sentenced the Petitioner to serve a twenty-year sentence consecutive to his life sentence. On direct appeal, this Court affirmed the Petitioner's convictions and sentences. The Petitioner then filed a post-conviction petition claiming he received the ineffective assistance of counsel at his trial. The post-conviction court denied relief, and the Petitioner now appeals claiming the post-conviction court erred when it dismissed his petition. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. TYREE ROBINSON

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Larry Copeland and Samantha Neumann (at trial); Joseph S. Ozment (on appeal), Memphis,Tennessee, for the appellant, Tyree Robinson.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Assistant Attorney General;William L. Gibbons, District Attorney General; and John Campbell and Amy Weirich, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: GLENN

A Shelby County jury convicted the defendant, Tyree Robinson, of first degree premeditated murder, felony murder, and especially aggravated robbery. On his first direct appeal, this court held that the trial court committed reversible error when it failed to instruct the jury, in response to its question, that accomplices could not corroborate each other and then remanded for a new trial. After retrial, the defendant was again convicted of the above three offenses and sentenced to life imprisonment and twenty years, to be served consecutively. On appeal, the defendant argues under an umbrella challenge to the sufficiency of the evidence that: (1) the trial court erred in failing to instruct the jury that two of the witnesses, Ilyas Morris and Mieko Saulsberry, were accomplices as a matter of law, and (2) even assuming those witnesses were not accomplices, their testimony was insufficient to corroborate the testimony of the defendant's accomplices. Upon review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court but remand for entry of amended judgments to reflect the correct offense date.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. BRENT WALKER

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel West Harmon, Assistant Attorney General; William L. Gibbons, District Attorney General; and Charles W. Bell, Jr. and Abby Wallace, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: GLENN

The defendant, Brent Walker, was convicted by a Shelby County jury of three counts of second offense driving under the influence, which the trial court merged into a single conviction; one count of reckless driving; one count of refusal to submit to a blood-alcohol concentration test while driving on a revoked license with license revoked for prior driving under the influence; and one count of driving on a revoked license. He was sentenced to an effective term of one year to be served in confinement and five months, twenty-nine days on probation. The defendant appeals, arguing that the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions and that the trial court imposed an excessive sentence. After review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Cameron L. Hyder, Assistant Attorney General; Garry G. Brown, District Attorney General; and Matthew B. Hooper, Assistant District Attorney General, for the State of Tennessee.

Judge: TIPTON

The Petitioner, Rodney Welch, appeals from the Gibson County Circuit Court's summary dismissal of his "Petition to Alter or Amend Sentence," in which he seeks a judicial determination that the Department of Correction has incorrectly calculated his sentence end date and that he is entitled to immediate release. He also challenges the trial court's taxing of costs to him. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.

The high court held that a utility district in Austin, Texas, can opt out of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, a key provision of the civil rights law, which requires all or parts of 16 mainly southern states with a history of voter discrimination to get pre-approval before changing ways that elections are conducted, Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. said the act "now raises serious constitutional concerns. The preclearance requirement represents an intrusion into areas of state and local responsibility that is otherwise unfamiliar to our federal system.'
