Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Eugenia R. Grayer, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Albert C. Scott.

Attorneys 2:

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

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Davidson County jury convicted the Defendant, Albert C. Scott, of two counts of rape. The trial court merged the convictions and sentenced the Defendant to serve twelve months of incarceration, followed by nine years of probation. On appeal, the Defendant challenges the State’s evidence against him, asserting that the State failed to prove the Defendant possessed the requisite mens rea for the crime. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we conclude there exists no error. We, therefore, affirm the trial court’s judgment.
