Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Nov 7, 2014

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kenneth R. McKnight, Assistant Public Defender, for the appellant, Brandon Croasmun.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Clark B. Thornton, Assistant Attorney General; William C. Whitesell, Jr., District Attorney General; and Trevor Lynch, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Brandon Croasmun, appeals from the Cannon County Circuit Court’s denial of his motion for a suspended sentence. Because the trial court’s denial was based on its erroneous belief that it lacked jurisdiction to decide the motion, as conceded by the State, we reverse the decision of the trial court and remand for a hearing.
