Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Claiborne H. Ferguson (on appeal) and Jeff Woods (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Mateem Hudson.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Chris West and Abby Wallace, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

A Shelby County Criminal Court Jury convicted the appellant, Mateem Hudson, of second degree murder, a Class A felony, and the trial court sentenced him to twenty-three years in confinement to be served at 100%. On appeal, the appellant contends that the trial court erred by allowing the State to introduce evidence about his other bad acts and that the evidence is insufficient to support the conviction. Based upon the oral arguments, the record, and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
