Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael J. Collins, Shelbyville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Oren Ray Johnson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith Devault, Senior Counsel; Robert Carter, District Attorney General; and Weakley E. Barnard, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Defendant, Oren Ray Johnson, pleaded guilty to simple assault, and the trial court ordered a probationary sentence of eleven months and twenty-nine days. Thereafter, the Defendant was arrested for aggravated domestic assault, an offense to which he pleaded guilty. The trial court issued a probation violation warrant and, after a hearing, revoked the Defendant’s probation sentence. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the trial court improperly ordered him to serve the remainder of his sentence in confinement for violating the terms of his probation. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
