Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Matthew J. Crigger, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellant, Willie Lee Hughes, Jr.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; James E. Gaylord, Assistant Attorney General; Kim R. Helper, District Attorney General; and Mary Katharine White, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Willie Lee Hughes, Jr., appeals both his Williamson County Circuit Court jury conviction of aggravated robbery and his guilty-pleaded conviction of failure to appear, claiming that the trial court erred by failing to exclude his statements to law enforcement officers on the basis that the statements were made during the course of plea negotiations and that the trial court erred by classifying him as a persistent offender. Discerning no error, we affirm.
