Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

C. Brad Sproles, Johnson City, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jessica Tramel.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Senior Counsel; Anthony Wade Clark, District Attorney General; and Ken Baldwin, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The appellant, Jessica Tramel, pled guilty in the Washington County Criminal Court to theft of property valued $60,000 or more and received an eight-year sentence to be served in confinement. The trial court also determined that she owed $193,314.64 restitution. On appeal, the appellant claims that the trial court erred by denying her request for alternative sentencing and by applying only one-half of an insurance company’s payment to the victim to the amount of restitution. Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
