Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jonathan M. Holcomb, Morristown, Tennessee, for the Defendant-Appellant, Robert Andrew Hawkins.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Senior Counsel; Lori Phillips-Jones, District Attorney General; and Amanda H. Sammons, Matthew McClung, and Graham E. Wilson, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Defendant, Robert Andrew Hawkins, was convicted by a Claiborne County jury of aggravated kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault. For these offenses, he received an effective sentence of sixteen years' in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, he argues that the trial court erred by denying his motion for a mistrial and abused its discretion by imposing consecutive sentences. Upon review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
