Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Andre B. Mathis (on appeal), and J. Jeffrey Lee (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Carlos Wilson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jonathan H. Wardle, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Douglas Gregory Gilbert and Abby Wallace, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Shelby County jury convicted the Defendant of aggravated sexual battery and especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor. The trial court sentenced him to an effective sentence of twenty-one years, to be served at 100%. On appeal, the Defendant contends that: (1) the trial court erred when it required that he be represented by counsel at trial; (2) the evidence is insufficient to sustain his convictions; and (3) the trial court erred when it ordered consecutive sentences. After a thorough review of the record and the applicable authorities, we conclude that there exists no error in the judgments of the trial court. Accordingly, we affirm the trial court’s judgments.
