Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Greg Leffew, Rockwood, Tennessee, for the appellant, Hill’s Bonding Company.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Senior Counsel; Russell Johnson, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Appellant, Hill’s Bonding Company, filed a petition for permission to issue bail bonds in the Ninth Judicial District. The trial court denied the Appellant’s petition, stating that it was not considering any such petitions at the present time. The Appellant appeals the trial court’s denial. The State concedes that the trial court did not have the authority to deny the Appellant’s petition. After review, we reverse the trial court’s judgment.
