Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Liddell Kirk (on appeal), Knoxville, Tennessee; and Mack Garner, District Public Defender (at trial), Maryville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Mary Drew Gentry.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Andrew C. Coulam, Assistant Attorney General; Mike Flynn, District Attorney General; and Shari Tayloe, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee. 

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

Mary Drew Gentry (“the Defendant”) appeals the Blount County Circuit Court’s order revoking her probation and imposing her three-year sentence for burglary. On appeal, the Defendant acknowledges that she violated probation but argues that the trial court should have imposed split confinement and community corrections rather than ordering her to serve her sentence. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
