Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Roger E. Nell, District Public Defender, and Collier W. Goodlett, Assistant District Public Defender, Springfield, Tennessee, for the appellant, Dondrinkus T. Dickerson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clark B. Thornton, Senior Counsel; John W. Carney, District Attorney General; and Jason C. White, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Robertson County jury convicted the Defendant, Dondrinkus T. Dickerson, of rape, and the trial court sentenced the Defendant to ten years in the Tennessee Department of Correction to be served consecutively to his prior sentences. On appeal, the Defendant contends that: (1) the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction; and (2) the trial court abused its discretion when it sentenced him. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
