Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Neil Thompson, Huntingdon, Tennessee, for the appellant, Joseph Samuel Kyle.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel E. Willis, Senior Counsel; Hansel J. McCadams, District Attorney General; and James E. Williams, III, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Joseph Samuel Kyle, was convicted by a Benton County Circuit Court jury of aggravated criminal trespass, a Class A misdemeanor, and was sentenced to eleven months and twenty-nine days, suspended to probation after serving thirty days in jail. On appeal, he argues: (1) interrelated issues that the trial court erred in overruling his motions for judgment of acquittal and new trial and that the evidence is insufficient to sustain his conviction; and (2) the trial court erred in allowing hearsay testimony into evidence over his objection. After review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
