Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Feb 9, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jerry H. Summers (on appeal) and Benjamin McGowan (at trial), Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jay Herman Sanders.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; J. Michael Taylor, District Attorney General; and Sherry Shelton, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

The Defendant, Jay Herman Sanders, appeals from the trial court’s denial of an alternative sentence and order to pay $250,000 in restitution. He argues that the trial court abused its discretion when it sentenced him to 10 years in the Department of Correction and claims that the trial court failed to consider his future ability to pay restitution. After a review of the record and the applicable law, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
