Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Oct 3, 2014

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Daniel James Barnes (on appeal), McMinnville, Tennessee, and John P. Partin (at guilty plea), McMinnville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jonathan Casey Bryant.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; J. Ross Dyer, Senior Counsel; Lisa S. Zavogiannis, District Attorney General; and Thomas J. Miner and Sheila Miner, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Defendant, Jonathan Casey Bryant, pled guilty to promotion of the manufacture of methamphetamine. As part of the plea agreement, the Defendant reserved a certified question of law challenging the trial court’s denial of his motion to suppress the evidence resulting from his traffic stop. However, the Defendant failed to file any document specifying the certified question presented. Because the Defendant failed to properly reserve the certified question, the appeal is dismissed.
