Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

William C. Barnes, Cordova, Tennessee, for the Defendant-Appellant, Christopher Dewayne Henson.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Senior Counsel; Mike Bottoms, District Attorney General; and Dan Runde, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Defendant-Appellant, Christopher Dewayne Henson, was convicted by a Maury County jury of reckless endangerment. The trial court sentenced the Defendant to 11 months and 29 days and ordered that he serve 45 days in confinement, with the remainder of his sentence to be served on supervised probation. On appeal, the Defendant argues that (1) the evidence is insufficient to sustain his conviction; (2) the trial court erred in admitting color photographs of the victim?s injuries; and (3) the trial court abused its discretion in sentencing the Defendant. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
