Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Gerald L. Melton, District Public Defender, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the appellant, Charles E. May.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel Harmon, Assistant Attorney General; and William C. Whitesell, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): SMITH

Appellant appeals from the trial court’s denial of his motion to suspend the balance of a sixyear sentence he was serving in the Rutherford County jail. He claims that the trial court erred; (1) in limiting Appellant’s opportunity to present proof at the motion hearing; (2) denying his motion to suspend sentence because of a waiver included in a probation violation agreement; (3) denying Appellant’s motion on an improper basis; and (4) that Appellant received ineffective assistance of counsel at the motion hearing. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
