Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Mart S. Cizek, for the Defendant-Appellant, Robert Edward Fritts.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Assistant Attorney General; David S. Clark; District Attorney General; and Sandra N.C. Donaghy and Victoria E. Bannach, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Defendant-Appellant, Robert Edward Fritts, appeals his conviction for first degree premeditated murder, for which he received a sentence of life without parole. On appeal, he argues that (1) the trial court erred in allowing the State to introduce expert testimony regarding Fritts’s gang affiliation, and (2) the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction. Upon review, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
