Posted by: Tanja Trezise on May 21, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Howard Upchurch, Pikeville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Ruby Graham.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel E. Willis, Assistant Attorney General; Randall A. York, District Attorney General; and Mark Tribble, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Ruby Graham, appeals from her White County Circuit Court jury conviction of the sale of morphine, see T.C.A. § 39-17-417(a)(3), claiming that the trial court erred by denying her request for a mistrial and by refusing her bid for judicial diversion. Because the defendant failed to prepare an adequate record for review of either issue, we must presume that the rulings of the trial court are correct, and we affirm.
