Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

William B. Lockert, III, Public Defender; and Dawn Kavanaugh, Assistant Public Defender, Ashland City, Tennessee, for the appellant, Michael G. Kohlmeyer.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Senior Counsel; Wendall Ray Crouch, Jr., District Attorney General; and Craig S. Monsue, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Humphreys County jury convicted the Defendant, Michael G. Kohlmeyer, of two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a Class D felony, and the trial court sentenced him to an effective sentence of two years. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the trial court erred when it denied his motion to suppress photographs and videos police officers found on his cellular telephone because the police officers did not have consent to search the phone or probable cause to view photographs and videos on the phone. After review, we affirm the convictions and sentences. We remand the case to the trial court for the entry of corrected judgments reflecting that the convictions and sentences are for sexual exploitation of a minor rather than attempted sexual exploitation of a minor.
