Posted by: Landry Butler on Dec 20, 2016

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

David L. Robbins, Johnson City, Tennessee, for the appellant, Dylan Ward Hutchins.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Anthony Wade Clark, District Attorney General; and Frederick M. Lance, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Dylan Ward Hutchins, appeals the Washington County Criminal Court’s denial of his request for judicial diversion from his mitigated statutory rape conviction, arguing that the trial court failed to consider and properly weigh all relevant factors and improperly considered facts outside the record in rendering its decision. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court denying diversion. However, we remand to the trial court for entry of a corrected judgment reflecting the conviction offense as mitigated statutory rape.
