Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Liddell Kirk, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Ian Michael Boone Parks.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter, Nicholas W. Spangler, Assistant Attorney General; William P. Phillips, District Attorney General, and Jared Effler, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellant, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): SMITH

Appellant, Ian Michael Boone Parks, was charged by criminal information with one count of aggravated assault in Claiborne County. Appellant pled guilty, and the trial court held a sentencing hearing. The trial court sentenced Appellant to a five-year sentence of confinement as a Range I, standard offender. On appeal, Appellant argues that the sentence imposed by the trial court was not supported by the evidence. After a thorough review of the record, we have determined that Appellant failed to include both the transcript of the guilty plea and the presentence report. These documents are necessary for an adequate review of the issues presented. Because we do not have these documents, we must conclude that the trial court’s sentences are supported by the evidence. Therefore, the judgment of the trial court is affirmed.
