Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Andrea Sipes Lester and Chad M. Butler (on appeal), Gregory W. Winton and J. Daniel Rogers (at trial), Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Susan M. Barnett.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Garry G. Brown, District Attorney General; Stephanie Hale and Jerald Campbell, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Gibson County jury found the Defendant, Susan M. Barnett, guilty of one count of aggravated assault, two counts of assault, and one count of unauthorized use of an automobile. The trial court ordered the Defendant to serve a six-year sentence for the aggravated assault conviction and concurrent sentences of eleven months and twenty-nine days for the remaining convictions. On appeal, the Defendant claims that the evidence is insufficient to sustain her conviction for aggravated assault by seriously bodily injury because the victim did not suffer “seriously bodily injury.” After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
