Head Comment: CORRECTED OPINION: Second line, the hyphen between lesser included has been removed.

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Keith Lowe, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Tonya Thomas.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; Randall E. Nichols, District Attorney General, and Patti Cristil, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): SMITH

The Knox County Grand Jury indicted Appellant, Tonya Thomas, for one count of aggravated assault. The trial court found Appellant guilty of a lesser included offense of simple assault. Appellant was sentenced to eleven months and twenty-nine days of probation. On appeal, Appellant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence for her conviction for simple assault. We have thoroughly reviewed the record on appeal and have concluded that the evidence presented is sufficient to support the conviction. For these reasons, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
