Judge(s): TIPTON

The Defendant, Seymore S. Staten, was convicted by a Williamson County Circuit Court jury of reckless aggravated assault, a Class D felony. See T.C.A. § 39-13-102 (2010). He was sentenced as a Range I, standard offender to three years’ confinement to be served consecutively to a previously imposed eighty-seven-month federal sentence. On appeal, the Defendant contends that (1) the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction and (2) his right to a speedy trial was violated. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
