Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Keith E. Lowe (at sentencing and on appeal) and Leslie M. Jeffress (at trial), for the appellant, Jerry Kirkpatrick.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Andrew C. Coulam, Assistant Attorney General; Randy Nichols, District Attorney General; and Kenneth F. Irvine, Jr., Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The defendant was convicted of burglary and theft, both Class D felonies. The defendant was sentenced to two concurrent seven-year terms in the Department of Correction. On appeal, the defendant claims that the trial court erred by admitting evidence of the defendant’s participation in an additional burglary and by ordering him to serve his sentence in confinement. After review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
