Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Brett B. Stein, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Louis Still.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Caitlin Smith, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Carla Taylor, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCGEE OGLE

A Shelby County Criminal Court Jury convicted the appellant, Louis Still, of operating a motor vehicle after having been declared a motor vehicle habitual offender, a Class E felony, and the trial court sentenced him to four years to be served as one month in confinement and the remainder on supervised probation. On appeal, the appellant contends that the evidence is insufficient to support the conviction because the State?s key witness, the arresting officer, was not credible. Based upon the record and the parties? briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
