Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Dec 22, 2014

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael Auffinger (at trial and on appeal) and Robert Dalton (at trial), Lewisburg, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jason Lee Fisher.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; Charles Frank Crawford, Jr., District Attorney General; and Weakley E. Barnard, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Defendant, Jason Lee Fisher, was convicted by a Marshall County Circuit Court jury of felony escape, a Class E felony. See T.C.A. § 39-16-605(a) (2014). The trial court sentenced the Defendant to six years’ confinement at 60% service to be served consecutively to a previous sentence. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction and that the trial court erred by denying his motion for a judgment of acquittal. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
