Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Terrell Tooten, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Walter Shegog.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Jose Leon, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

Aggrieved of his Shelby County Criminal Court jury conviction of theft of property valued at $1,000 or more but less than $10,000, the defendant, Walter Shegog, appeals, claiming that the trial court was without jurisdiction to impose his conviction because the offense occurred on federal property, that the trial court erred by refusing to dismiss the indictment based upon the State’s destruction of certain evidence, and that the trial court erred by permitting the State to use all of the defendant’s prior convictions as impeachment evidence. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
