Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; J. Ross Dyer, Senior Counsel; D. Michael Dunavant, District Attorney General; and Billy Burk, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellant, State of Tennessee.

Attorneys 2:

Charles A. Brasfield, Covington, Tennessee, for the appellee, Terence Dewayne Borum.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Terence Dewayne Borum, pleaded guilty to burglary, theft over $1,000, and vandalism over $500 with the sentence to be determined by the trial court. Following a sentencing hearing, the trial court found the defendant to be a persistent offender and imposed an effective ten-year sentence to be served on probation. The State appeals contending that the trial court erred in finding the defendant to be a persistent, rather than a career, offender. Based upon our review of the record and the applicable law, we reverse the judgment of the trial court and remand the case to the trial court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
