Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robert C. Edwards, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, David Andrew Oliver.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Ahmed A. Safeeullah, Assistant Attorney General; Randall Eugene Nichols, District Attorney General; and Kyle Hixson, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

A Knox County Criminal Court Jury convicted the appellant, David Andrew Oliver, of rape of a child, a Class A felony, and the trial court sentenced him to twenty-five years to be served at 100%. On appeal, the appellant contends that the trial court erred by denying his motion to suppress his confession to police and by limiting his cross-examination of the victim about her prior inconsistent statements. Based upon the oral arguments, the record, and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
