Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Dawn Deaner, District Public Defender; Emma Rae Tennent (on appeal) and Jonathan Wing (at hearing), Assistant Public Defenders, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Defendant- Appellant, Jesse Allen Christman.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Tracy L. Alcock, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and J. Wesley King, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Defendant-Appellant, Jesse Allen Christman, entered guilty pleas to aggravated assault and kidnapping, Class C felonies, with the trial court to determine the length and manner of service of the sentences. After a sentencing hearing, the trial court sentenced him to twelve years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Defendant argues that the trial court abused its discretion in imposing an excessive sentence and in denying him an alternative sentence. Upon review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
