Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robert L. Thomas, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Dwaylan Dupree House.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Assistant Attorney General; John Wesley Carney, Jr., District Attorney General; and Julie K. Pillow, Assistant District Attorney General; for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Defendant, Dwaylan Dupree House, contends (1) that the evidence presented at trial was insufficient to support his jury convictions, (2) that the trial court erred in denying his motion for judgment of acquittal and motion for new trial, and (3) that the trial court’s imposition of a ten-year sentence and $2,882.22 in restitution was excessive. Following our review of the record and the applicable authorities, we affirm the Defendant’s convictions for vandalism and burglary, reverse the sentence imposed, and remand for resentencing.
