Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Drew W. Taylor (on appeal) and Dawn Kavanagh (at trial), Ashland City, Tennessee, for the appellant, Sharron Joy Mayberry.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel Harmon, Senior Counsel; Dan Mitchum Alsobrooks, District Attorney General; and E. Dani Bryson and Craig Monsue, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

A Humphreys County Circuit Court Jury convicted the appellant, Sharron Joy Mayberry, of simple possession of a Schedule III controlled substance, a Class A misdemeanor, and the trial court sentenced her to eleven months, twenty-nine days suspended to probation and community service. On appeal, the appellant contends that the trial court erred by denying her motion to suppress evidence, that the trial court erred by not giving a missing evidence jury instruction, and that the evidence is insufficient to support the conviction. Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
