Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Emma Rae Tennent (on appeal); and Mary Kathryn Harcombe and Chad Hindman (at trial), Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Edy Chavez Pantaleon.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson III, District Attorney General; and Kristen Menke and Sharon Reddick, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Edy Chavez Pantaleon, appeals his Davidson County Criminal Court jury convictions of rape of a child and aggravated sexual battery, claiming that the evidence was insufficient to support the convictions. In addition, the defendant argues that the trial court erred by instructing the jury on flight and that the sentence imposed by the trial court is excessive. Upon our review, we affirm the trial court’s judgments.
