Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; Lori Phillips-Jones, District Attorney General; and John G. Galloway, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): SMITH

The Fentress County Grand Jury indicted Appellant, Leslie Warren Blevins, with three counts of aggravated assault. After a jury trial, Appellant was convicted of one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault. As a result, he was sentenced to an effective sentence of five years in confinement. Appellant appeals, challenging both the sufficiency of the evidence and his sentence. After a review of the record and the applicable authorities, we determine that the evidence was sufficient to support the conviction and that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in sentencing Appellant. Accordingly, the judgments of the trial court are affirmed.
