Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael J. LaGuardia, Kingsport, Tennessee, for the appellant, Danny Ray Hensley.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Nicholas W. Spangler, Assistant Attorney General; C. Berkeley Bell, District Attorney General; and Kevin Keeton, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): TIPTON

The Defendant, Danny Ray Hensley, pleaded guilty to robbery, a Class C felony. See T.C.A. § 39-13-401 (2010). He was sentenced as a Range I, standard offender to eight years’ confinement. On appeal, he contends that the trial court erred in denying an alternative sentence. Because the trial court did not consider a presentence report, we reverse its judgment and remand for resentencing.
