Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Roger E. Nell (on appeal), District Public Defender; and Timothy J. Richter (at trial), Assistant Public Defender; for the appellant, Brandon L. Kirk.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; John Wesley Carney, Jr., District Attorney General; and Jason White, Assistant District Attorney General; for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Defendant, Brandon L. Kirk, contends (1) that the evidence presented at trial is insufficient to sustain his jury conviction for attempted second degree murder and (2) that the effective twenty-two year sentence imposed by the trial court is inconsistent with the purposes and principles of sentencing because the trial court failed to state the facts it considered in mitigation and to make the requisite findings to impose consecutive sentencing. After our review of the record and the applicable authorities, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
