Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Mark E. Stephens, District Public Defender; Robert C. Edwards, Assistant Public Defender, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the Defendant-Appellant, Lamar Kashef Allen.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; Randall E. Nichols, District Attorney General; Zane Scarlett and Kenneth Irvine, Jr., Assistant District Attorneys General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Defendant-Appellant, Lamar Kashief Allen, entered guilty pleas to possession of cocaine with intent to sell an amount less than one-half gram and tampering with evidence, Class C felonies, and received an effective six-year sentence with the manner of service to be determined by the court. After a sentencing hearing, the court ordered confinement in the Tennessee Department of Correction. The sole issue on appeal is whether the trial court erred in denying Allen’s request for alternative sentencing. Finding no error, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
