Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

David Harris, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Darrell Ray Beene.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; M. Todd Ridley, Assistant Attorney General; Glenn R. Funk, District Attorney General; and Jeff Burks, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Davidson County jury convicted the Defendant, Darrell Ray Beene, of aggravated robbery, and the trial court sentenced him to twenty years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. The trial court ordered that the Defendant?s sentence be served consecutively to the Defendant?s forty-two year sentence in another case. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the evidence is insufficient to sustain his conviction and that his sentence is excessive. After a thorough review of the record and applicable authorities, we affirm the Defendant?s conviction and sentence.
