Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Troy L. Bowlin, II (on appeal), Knoxville, Tennessee, and Jonathan M. Holcomb (at trial), Morristown, Tennessee, for the appellant, Christopher S. Kinsler.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; C. Berkeley Bell, Jr., District Attorney General; and Dan E. Armstrong, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): TIPTON

The Defendant, Christopher S. Kinsler, was convicted by a Hamblen County Criminal Court jury of fourth offense driving under the influence (DUI), a Class E felony. See T.C.A. § 55- 10-401 (2012). The trial court sentenced the Defendant as a Range I, standard offender to two years’ confinement. On appeal, the Defendant contends that (1) the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction, (2) the State violated the rules of discovery by failing to provide notice of expert testimony, (3) trial testimony contained inadmissible hearsay, and (4) his sentence is excessive. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
