Posted by: Tanja Trezise on May 2, 2013

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Liddell Kirk (on appeal) and Michael Graves (at revocation hearing), Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Raynell Hobson.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Deshea Dulany Faughn, Assistant Attorney General; Randall Nichols, District Attorney General; and Debbie Malone, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Defendant pled guilty to aggravated assault, and the trial court sentenced him to four years, suspended after three months and nineteen days in confinement. In January 2012, the Defendant’s probation officer filed an affidavit alleging that the Defendant had violated the terms of his probation. After a hearing on the allegation, the trial court revoked the Defendant’s probation and ordered him to serve the balance of his sentence in confinement. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the trial court erred when it ordered him to serve the balance of his sentence in confinement. After a thorough review of the record and applicable authority, we conclude that the trial court did not err. The trial court’s judgment is, therefore, affirmed.
