Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Gregory D. Gookin (on appeal), Jackson, Tennessee, and G. Michael Casey (at trial), Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Kevin Womack.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Senior Counsel; James G. Woodall, District Attorney General; Brian Gilliam, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.


A Madison County jury convicted the Defendant, Kevin Womack, of possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, possession of a firearm with intent to employ in the commission of a dangerous felony, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft of property over $500, and tampering with evidence. The trial court sentenced the Defendant to an effective eighteen-year sentence in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Defendant asserts that the evidence is insufficient to support his convictions. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgments, with the exception of the theft of property conviction, which we modify from a Class E felony theft to a Class A misdemeanor theft.
