Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Aug 13, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Harry E. Sayle, III (on appeal) and Jennifer Case (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Troy Ector.

Attorneys 2:

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

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Shelby County jury convicted the Defendant, Troy Ector, of especially aggravated kidnapping, carjacking, and employing a firearm during the commission of a felony, and the trial court sentenced him to a twenty-two year effective sentence. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the evidence was insufficient to sustain his convictions and that the trial court erred when it denied his request for a jury instruction on the lesser-included offense of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. After a thorough review of the record and relevant authorities, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
