Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen Bush, Chief Public Defender; Harry E. Sayle III, Assistant Public Defender (on appeal); Jim Hale, Assistant Public Defender (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Deney Brockman.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; Amy Weirich, District Attorney General; and Pam Fleming, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): BIVINS

Deney Brockman (“the Defendant”) was convicted by a jury of burglary of a building other than a habitation. After a hearing, the trial court sentenced the Defendant as a career offender to twelve years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. In this appeal, the Defendant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting his conviction. Upon our thorough review of the record and applicable law, we hold that the evidence is sufficient to support the Defendant’s conviction. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
