Posted by: Landry Butler on Aug 25, 2016

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

John S. Colley, III, Columbia, Tennessee (on appeal) and Robert Stovall, Jr., Pulaski, Tennessee (at trial) for the appellant, Richard Bryant Long.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Senior Counsel; Brent A. Cooper, District Attorney General; and Christie L. Thompson, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Lawrence County jury convicted the Defendant, Richard Bryant Long, of rape of a child, and the trial court sentenced him to serve twenty-five years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the trial court erred when it allowed a video recording of the victim's interview to be admitted without satisfying the requirements of Tennessee Code Annotated section 24-7-123. After a thorough review of the record and relevant authorities, we affirm the trial court's judgment.
