Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Richard H. Dunavant, Assistant Public Defender, for the appellant, Brandi Nichole Miller.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel Harmon, Assistant Attorney General; T. Michel Bottoms, District Attorney General; and Beverly J. White, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Brandi Nichole Miller, appeals the revocation of her probation and reinstatement of her original twelve-year sentence, arguing: (1) that the trial court abused its discretion by revoking her probation; (2) that her due process rights were violated by the fact that the trial court relied on grounds that had formed the bases for her prior probation revocations and were not alleged in the instant revocation warrant; and (3) that the trial court erred by ordering her to serve sentences that had already expired. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court revoking the defendant’s probation and reinstating her twelve-year sentence in the Department of Correction.
