Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Colin Morris, Jackson Tennessee, for the appellant, Darrel Pathrice McNeal.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Senior Counsel; James G. (“Jerry”) Woodall, District Attorney General; and Shaun A. Brown, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

Following a jury trial, the Defendant, Darrel Pathrice McNeal, was convicted of aggravated robbery, a Class B felony, and evading arrest, a Class A misdemeanor. See Tenn. Code Ann. §§ 39-13-402, -16-603(a)(1). On appeal, the Defendant challenges only the sufficiency of the evidence underlying his conviction for aggravated robbery. However, because the Defendant filed an untimely notice of appeal and the interest of justice does not favor waiver of the timely filing requirement in this case, this appeal is dismissed.
