Posted by: Barry Kolar on Jun 16, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Phyllis Aluko (on appeal) and Alicia Kutch (at trial), Assistant District Public Defenders, for the appellant, Shelton Pope.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Meghan Fowler, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Shelton Pope, appeals his Shelby County Criminal Court jury conviction of theft of property valued at more than $500 but less than $1,000. On appeal, the defendant claims that the trial court erroneously denied his motion for a mistrial in response to the jury’s being exposed to improper influence and that the evidence is insufficient to support the conviction. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the criminal court.
