Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

C. Brad Sproles, Kingsport, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Christopher Fralix.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Ahmed Safeeullah, Assistant Attorney General; Barry Staubus, District Attorney General; and Julie R. Canter, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The defendant, Christopher Fralix, pled guilty to one count of robbery, a Class C felony, and one count of aggravated burglary, a Class C felony, in exchange for an effective sentence of six years. The trial court denied all forms of alternative sentencing and ordered the defendant to serve his sentence in incarceration. He now appeals, arguing that the trial court abused its discretion in denying an alternative sentence. Following our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
