Posted by: Suzanne Craig Robertson on Aug 6, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Barry W. Kuhn (on appeal), Alisa Kutch (at trial), and James Greene (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Xavier Bell.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; Glen Baity and Stacy McEndree, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Shelby County jury convicted the Defendant, Xavier Bell, of aggravated robbery, and the trial court sentenced the Defendant, as a Range I, standard offender, to serve nine years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. The Defendant appeals his conviction, contending that: (1) the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction; and (2) the trial court erred when it admitted recordings of the Defendant’s jail telephone conversations. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
