Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

James M. Judkins, Smithville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Dickie Ray Bain.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; Randall A. York, District Attorney General; and Greg Strong, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The appellant, Dickie Ray Bain, pled guilty in the DeKalb County Circuit Court to theft of property valued $1,000 or more, a Class D felony, and the trial court sentenced him as a Range III, career offender to twelve years to be served at sixty percent. On appeal, the appellant contends that the trial court committed reversible error by referring to the wrong offense during the sentencing hearing and that his sentence constitutes “cruel and unusual punishment.” Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
