Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Sep 9, 2014

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jay Underwood, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Allen Lebron Tucker.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Ahmed A. Safeeullah, Assistant Attorney General; William H. Cox, III, District Attorney General; and Bret Alexander, Assistant District Attorney General for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Hamilton County jury found the Defendant, Allen Lebron Tucker, guilty of possession with intent to sell one-half gram or more of cocaine. The trial court ordered the Defendant to serve a fifteen-year sentence for this conviction. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the trial court erred when it denied his motion to suppress the evidence obtained during the execution of a search warrant and when it excluded evidence of his girlfriend’s prior drug conviction. After a thorough review of the record and relevant law, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
