Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

George Morton Googe, District Public Defender (on appeal), and Paul E. Meyers, Assistant Public Defender (at plea and sentencing hearings), Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jason Everett Nickell.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; James G. (Jerry) Woodall, District Attorney General; and Benjamin C. Mayo, Assistant District Attorney, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): BIVINS

Jason Everett Nickell (“the Defendant”) pleaded guilty to three counts of misdemeanor stalking, with no agreement as to his sentences. After a hearing, the trial court sentenced him to eleven months, twenty-nine days at seventy-five percent on each count, to be served consecutively. On appeal, the Defendant argues that his sentence is excessive because the trial court did not consider two mitigating factors. After a thorough review of the record and the applicable law, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
