Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Lawren B. Lassister, Gallatin, Tennessee, for the appellant, Richard Barefoot.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel Willis, Senior Counsel; Lawrence Ray Whitley, District Attorney General; and Thomas Boone Dean, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

In 2014 the Defendant, Richard Barefoot, pleaded guilty to identity theft, fraudulent use of a credit card, and theft of property. The trial court sentenced him to fifteen years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. The Defendant reserved a certified question of law pursuant to Tennessee Rule of Criminal Procedure 37(b)(2) about whether the trial court improperly denied his motion to dismiss by holding that the time limitation for prisoner transfer as proscribed by the Interstate Compact on Detainers was not applicable. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgments.
