Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Brandon Raulston (at motion for new trial and on appeal); and R. Garth Best and Kelli L. Black (at trial), Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Unjolee Tremone Moore.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Senior Counsel; Neal Pinkston, District Attorney General; and Cameron Williams, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

A jury convicted the defendant, Unjolee Tremone Moore, of first degree felony murder; attempted especially aggravated robbery, a Class B felony; attempted second degree murder, a Class B felony; and the employment of a firearm during the commission of or attempt to commit a dangerous offense, a Class C felony. On appeal, the defendant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence, the trial court?s refusal to dismiss based on the failure of police to collect a co-defendant's telephone, and the trial court?s decision to admit the defendant's statement to police into evidence. After a thorough review of the record, we conclude that the defendant is not entitled to relief, and we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
