Stephen C. Bush, District Public Defender; Harry E. Sayle, III (on appeal), and Lawrence R. White (at trial), Assistant Public Defenders, for the appellant, Kevin Holst.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Stacy McEndree and Jose F. Leon, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): TIPTON

The Defendant, Kevin Holst, was convicted by a Shelby County Criminal Court jury of aggravated assault, a Class C felony. See T.C.A. § 39-13-102 (2010). The trial courtsentenced him as a Range III, persistent offender to twelve years’ confinement. On appeal, he contends that (1) the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction and (2) the court erred by refusing to send the exhibits to the jury room during deliberations. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
