Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Brian M. Griffith, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Demontise Martez Drumwright a.k.a. Demontise J. Drumwright.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; Glenn Funk, District Attorney General; and Jennifer Charles, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

Demontise Martez Drumwright a.k.a. Demontise J. Drumwright (“the Defendant”) pleaded guilty to one count each of aggravated burglary and robbery. The trial court denied alternative sentencing, ordering the Defendant to serve his effective four-year sentence in confinement. On this appeal, the Defendant claims that the trial court erred when it (1) considered the Defendant’s pending case in Knox County as a basis for denial of alternative sentencing and (2) ordered the Defendant to serve his sentence in confinement. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
