Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joseph P. Atnip, Dresden, Tennessee, for the appellant, Christopher Lynn Clark.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Senior Counsel; Thomas A. Thomas, District Attorney General; and James T. Cannon, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

An Obion County jury convicted the Defendant, Christopher Lynn Clark, of one count of vehicular homicide by intoxication and four counts of vehicular assault with intoxication. The trial court ordered concurrent sentences for an effective sentence of ten years in the Department of Correction. The Defendant appeals, claiming: (1) the evidence is insufficient to support his convictions; (2) the trial court invaded the province of the jury by commenting on the evidence in response to a juror question; and (3) his sentence is excessive. After review, we affirm the trial court's judgments.
