Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kevin C. Angel, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Andrew Hall.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Ahmed A. Safeeullah, Assistant Attorney General; Russell Johnson, District Attorney General; and Gregory Eshbaugh, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WOODALL

Following a jury trial, Defendant, Andrew Hall, was found guilty of driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUI). He had been charged in the same indictment with violation of the implied consent law, and the trial court found him guilty of that offense in a bench trial. Prior to the jury trial, Defendant filed a motion to dismiss the charges because no lawful prosecution was initiated within the applicable statute of limitations. After a hearing, the motion was denied. Defendant’s sole issue on appeal is that the trial court erred by denying his motion to dismiss. After a thorough review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
