Posted by: Stacey Shrader Joslin on Aug 8, 2016

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Gerald S. Green (on appeal) and Eugene Belenitsky (at hearing), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Marcus Hampton.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; Amy Weirich, District Attorney General; Karen Cook, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Defendant, Marcus Hampton, appeals from the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition to suspend the remainder of his effective four-year workhouse sentence for his convictions of aggravated assault and evading arrest. Because he has failed to show facts supporting an alteration of the sentence in the interest of justice, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
