Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Gregory D. Smith, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Leslie Jacquinte Fetters.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Clark B. Thornton, Assistant Attorney General; John W. Carney, Jr., District Attorney General, and John E. Finklea, Assistant District Attorney General for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Defendant, Leslie Jacquinte Fetters, pled guilty to two counts of aggravated robbery and agreed to allow the trial court to determine his sentence. The plea agreement was based upon the Defendant being sentenced as a Range I offender to concurrent sentences. After a hearing, the trial court sentenced the Defendant to eleven years, at 30%, for each conviction and ordered that the sentences run concurrently as contemplated by the plea agreement. On appeal, the Defendant contends that his sentence is excessive. After a thorough review of the record and relevant authorities, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
