Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joseph S. Ozment, Memphis, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Cassidy Johnson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Andrew C. Coulam, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Terre Fratesi and Cavett Ostner, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The defendant, Cassidy Johnson, was convicted of one count of rape of a child, a Class A felony. On appeal, he argues that the evidence was insufficient to sustain his conviction; that the trial court erred in admitting the forensic interviews of the victim and another witness; and that the trial court improperly excluded evidence. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
