Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ardena J. Garth and Richard Kenneth Mabee (on appeal) and Blake Murchison (at trial), Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Chad Walter Cook.

Attorneys 2: Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; William H. Cox, III, District Attorney General; and Matthew Rogers, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The appellant, Chad Walter Cook, pled guilty in the Hamilton County Criminal Court to two counts of selling one-half gram or more of methamphetamine and received an effective eightyear sentence to be served on supervised probation. Subsequently, the trial court revoked his probation and ordered that he serve his sentences in confinement. On appeal, the appellant contends that the trial court abused its discretion by revoking his probation and ordering him to serve his original sentences. Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
