Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen C. Bush, Shelby County Public Defender; Barry W. Kuhn, Assistant Shelby County Public Defender (on appeal); and Coleman Garrett (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Stevie Gibson.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Ahmed A. Safeeullah, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Chris West and Sam Winnig, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): BIVINS

Stevie Gibson (“the Defendant”) was convicted by a jury of two counts of second degree murder and one count of aggravated robbery. The trial court merged the two murder convictions and sentenced the Defendant to serve an effective term of thirty-seven years’ incarceration. In this direct appeal, the Defendant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence and his sentence. Upon our thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgments.
