Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ron E. Munkeboe, Jr., (at trial and on appeal) and Dana Nero (at trial), Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Gary Adams.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Jeff Burks and Brian Ewald, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

A Davidson County Criminal Court Jury convicted the appellant, Gary Adams, of four counts of aggravated rape. The trial court imposed four, consecutive sentences of twenty-five years for a total effective sentence of 100 years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the appellant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence sustaining his convictions, the trial court’s refusal to merge the convictions, and the sentences imposed by the trial court. Upon review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
