Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Justin C. Angel, Pikeville, Tennessee, for the appellant, James Hayes.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Kyle Hixson, Assistant Attorney General; Randall A. York, District Attorney General; and Philip Hatch, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The appellant, James Hayes, pled guilty in the White County Criminal Court to driving under the influence (DUI) and reserved a certified question of law concerning whether the police had reasonable suspicion to stop his vehicle. Upon review, we conclude that the appellant failed to properly certify his question of law. Therefore, we are compelled to dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
