Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen C. Bush, District Public Defender; Tony N. Brayton (on appeal) and Constance Barnes (at trial), Assistant Public Defenders, Memphis, Tennessee, for the Defendant- Appellant, Komoyangi Komoyangi.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Robert Ratton, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

A Shelby County jury convicted the Defendant-Appellant, Komoyangi Komoyangi, of assault, a Class A misdemeanor, and he was sentenced to serve eleven months and twentynine days in confinement. The sole issue presented for our review is whether the evidence was sufficient to support the conviction given Komoyangi’s theory of self-defense. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
