Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

A. Philip Lomonaco, Knoxville, Tennessee, for Lee C. Palmer, the appellant.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Senior Counsel; Randall E. Nichols, District Attorney General; and Sarah Keith and Deborah Malone, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): BIVINS

Lee C. Palmer (“the Defendant”) was convicted by a jury of one count of felony reckless endangerment and one count of driving under the influence. In this direct appeal, the Defendant contends that she is entitled to a new trial because the trial court afforded her only three peremptory challenges instead of the statutorily required eight. Upon our thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgments.
