Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1: J. Thomas Caldwell, Ripley, Tennessee, for the appellant, Maurice Shaw, Sr.

Attorneys 2: Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Assistant Attorney General; D. Michael Dunavant, District Attorney General; James Walter Freeland, Jr., Assistant District Attorney General; and Billy G. Burk, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, the State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

A jury in Tipton County found Defendant, Maurice Shaw, Sr., guilty of delivery of 0.5 grams or more of cocaine, a Class B felony. The trial court sentenced Defendant to fifteen years as a Range II offender. Defendant appeals, contending that the evidence was insufficient to sustain the conviction and that he is entitled to a new trial because “the evidence was so tainted by improper actions and testimony of the drug task force officer and confidential informant.” After review of the record and the briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
