Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Lance R. Chism (on appeal) and Taylor Eskridge (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Michael Bailey.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Stacy McEndree and Alanda Dwyer, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

Michael Bailey (“the Defendant”) was convicted by a jury of one count of aggravated robbery in case number 09-02888. At a subsequent sentencing hearing for case number 09-02888 and six other case numbers, the Defendant was sentenced as a repeat, violent offender to seven sentences of life without the possibility of parole. The trial ordered the Defendant?s life without parole sentence in 09-02888 to run consecutively to one of the other life without parole sentences. On appeal, the Defendant argues that (1) the evidence was insufficient to support his conviction in case number 09-02888 and (2) the trial court abused its discretion when it ordered partial consecutive sentences. After a review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
