Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephanie D. Ritchie, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Antoine Cardet Smith.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Brent C. Cherry, Senior Counsel; John Wesley Carney, Jr., District Attorney General; and Lee Willoughby, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, the State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Defendant, Antoine Cardet Smith, was indicted by the Montgomery County grand jury for one count of aggravated robbery. A jury found Defendant guilty of the charged offense, and the trial court sentenced Defendant to serve 11 years and six months in the Tennessee Department of Correction. Defendant appeals his conviction and asserts that the trial court erred by denying his motion to suppress evidence of his identification resulting from a photographic lineup and evidence of a DNA comparison; that the evidence was insufficient to support his conviction; and that the trial court erred by denying his motion for new trial based on the comments of a prospective juror during voir dire. Having carefully reviewed the record before us, we find no error and affirm the judgment of the trial court.
