Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Misty D. Parks, Spring Hill, Tennessee, for the appellant, William Patrick Peebles.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Rob McGuire, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): SMITH

Appellant, William Patrick Peebles, and his two co-defendants, were indicted by the Davidson County Grand Jury for three counts of aggravated rape, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of aggravated burglary, and one count of use of a firearm during commission of a dangerous felony. After a jury trial, Appellant was convicted of all charges. The trial court sentenced Appellant to an effective sentence of fifty-eight years. On appeal, Appellant argues that the trial court erred in allowing the State to offer in evidence a videotape of an interview conducted by an officer, that the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions, and that the trial court erred in imposing consecutive sentences. After thorough review of the record, we determine that Appellant’s issues have no merit. Therefore, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
