Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

William J. Harold (on appeal and at trial) and Michael J. Collins (at trial), Lewisburg, Tennessee, for the appellant, Curtis Allen White.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel Harmon, Senior Counsel; Robert Carter, District Attorney General; and Weakley E. Barnard and Michael D. Randles, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The appellant, Curtis Allen White, pled guilty in the Marshall County Circuit Court to three counts of aggravated assault, one count of domestic assault, one count of misdemeanor vandalism, and one count of resisting arrest. Pursuant to the plea agreement, the trial court was to determine the length and manner of service of the sentences. After a sentencing hearing, the appellant received an effective five-year sentence to be served in confinement. On appeal, the appellant contends that the trial court abused its discretion by denying his request for alternative sentencing. Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
