Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jacob J. Hubbell, Columbia, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Lemonique Scherod Johnson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; Brent A. Cooper, District Attorney General; and Kyle E. Dodd, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

A Maury County Circuit Court Jury convicted the Appellant, Lemonique Scherod Johnson, of facilitation of aggravated robbery. The trial court sentenced the Appellant as a Range III, persistent offender to twelve years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Appellant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence sustaining his conviction, contending that the alleged victim was a participant in the robbery, that the evidence did not support a conviction of facilitation aggravated robbery because the victim was not “in fear,” and that the Appellant was not involved in the robbery. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
