Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Richard Boehms, Centerville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Gerald Hobbs.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Andrew C. Coulam, Assistant Attorney General; Kim R. Helper, District Attorney General; and Jessica N. Borne, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Gerald Hobbs, was convicted of one count of assault and one count of aggravated assault, while an order of protection was in effect, upon his former girlfriend and sentenced to an effective term of four years imprisonment. On appeal, he argues that the evidence is insufficient to sustain the convictions, that the trial court erred by not instructing the jury as to self-defense, and that the court erred in sentencing. Following our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
