Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jordan C. Long, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jerry Richard Masingo.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Senior Counsel; Lori Phillips-Jones, District Attorney General; and Tracy Tipton Jenkins, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Defendant, Jerry Richard Masingo, was convicted by a Union County Criminal Court jury of voluntary manslaughter, a Class C felony. See T.C.A. § 39-13-211 (2014). The trial court sentenced the Defendant as a Range I, standard offender to six years’ confinement. On appeal, he contends that (1) the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction and (2) the trial court abused its discretion by imposing a six-year sentence. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
