Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Nick McGregor, Nashville, Tennessee (at trial and on appeal), for the appellant, Johnny Malcolm Vinson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; Glenn Funk, District Attorney General; and Jan Norman and Tali Rosenblum, Assistant District Attorney Generals, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): DYER

The defendant, Johnny Malcolm Vinson, was convicted of aggravated assault in violation of an active order of protection pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-13-102(c). On appeal, the defendant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting his conviction arguing that conflicting testimony exists regarding his use of a deadly weapon and that the State failed to prove he acted with intent. After our review, we conclude that the defendant's arguments are without merit. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
