Paul Julius Walwyn, Madison, Tennessee, for the appellant, Deonte Alesio Matthews.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, District Attorney General; and Jennifer McMillen, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellant, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HARRIS

Appellant, Deonte Matthews, was convicted by a Davidson County jury of especially aggravated robbery and the trial court sentenced Appellant to seventeen years at 100%. After the denial of a motion for new trial, Appellant initiated this appeal challenging the sufficiency of the evidence. Reviewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the State, we conclude that the proof supports the conviction for especially aggravated robbery.
