Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen Bush, District Public Defender; Harry E. Sayle III (on appeal), Assistant District Public Defender; and Michele Lynn and John Zastrow (at trial), Assistant District Public Defenders, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Deangelo Jackson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Johnathan H. Wardle, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Jessica Banti, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

Deangelo Jackson (“the Defendant”) was indicted with one count each of especially aggravated robbery, attempted second-degree murder, and employing a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony. After a jury trial, the trial court entered judgments of conviction for especially aggravated robbery and facilitation of attempted second-degree murder and imposed an effective thirty-two-year sentence.1 On appeal, the Defendant raises two issues: (1) whether the evidence was sufficient to support his convictions and (2) whether the trial court erred when it held that the State would be allowed to impeach the Defendant’s testimony with evidence of his prior convictions for theft and felon in possession of a handgun. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
