Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1: Charles Carpenter, Maryville, Tennessee, for appellant, Christopher M. Foster.

Attorneys 2: Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Assistant Attorney General; Michael L. Flynn, District Attorney General; and Betsy Brockman, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The appellant, Christopher M. Foster, pled guilty in the Blount County Circuit Court to robbery and received a five-year sentence to be served on supervised probation. Subsequently, the trial court revoked his probation and ordered that he serve his sentence in confinement. On appeal, the appellant contends that the trial court abused its discretion by not granting him another alternative sentence. Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
