Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Emma Rae Tennent (on appeal); and Chad Hindman and J. Michael Engle (at trial), Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Antonio Marques Peebles.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Michelle L. Consiglio-Young, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson III, District Attorney General; and Bret Gunn and Megan King, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Antonio Marques Peebles, appeals his Davidson County Criminal Court jury conviction of aggravated robbery, claiming that the trial court erred by denying his motion to suppress the statements he made to law enforcement officers and the evidence obtained following his arrest, that the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions, and that the sentence imposed was excessive. Discerning no error, we affirm.
