Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael T. Pugh, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Justin David Fife.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Tracy L. Alcock, Assistant Attorney General; John W. Carney, District Attorney General; Chris Dotson, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): SMITH

The Circuit Court of Montgomery County revoked the probation of Appellant, Justin David Fife, after he failed to report that he had been arrested for assault and was found to be in “constructive possession” of a handgun. He argues on appeal that the gun was not his, that the discovery of the gun was the product of an illegal search, and that the trial court erred by denying his motion to suppress the evidence about the weapon. After carefully examining the evidence, we affirm the Circuit Court’s judgment.
