Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Amanda B. Dunn, Chattanooga, Tennessee (on appeal); Blake F. Murchison and Steve Brown, Assistant Public Defenders (at trial), for the appellant, David Edmond Rogers.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; William H. Cox, III, District Attorney General; and Charles D. Minor and Leslie A. Longshore, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, David Edmond Rogers, was convicted by a Hamilton County jury of aggravated burglary, a Class C felony, and theft over $500, a Class E felony, and was sentenced by the trial court as a career offender to fifteen years at sixty percent for the aggravated burglary conviction and six years at sixty percent for the theft conviction, with the sentences to be served consecutively to his sentences for prior Georgia convictions. On appeal, the defendant argues that the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress evidence obtained as a result of his traffic stop and that the evidence is insufficient to sustain his convictions. Following our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
