Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen C. Bush, District Public Defender; Barry W. Kuhn (on appeal); Arthur Benjamin Baker and Robert H. Gowen (at trial), Assistant Public Defenders, for the appellant, Danielle Rush.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Chris West and Gavin Smith, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Danielle Rush, was convicted by a Shelby County Criminal Court jury of two counts of attempted second degree murder, three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of reckless endangerment, and vandalism over $1000. The trial court merged two of the aggravated assault convictions and sentenced the defendant to an effective term of eleven years in the Department of Correction. On appeal, he argues that the evidence is insufficient to sustain his convictions. After review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
