Posted by: Landry Butler on Jan 27, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Elaine A. Heard (at trial) and David Harris (on appeal), Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Teddy Reece Ragan.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; Glenn R. Funk, District Attorney General; Roger Moore, Deputy District Attorney General; and Alyissa C. Henning, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Davidson County jury convicted the Defendant, Teddy Reece Ragan, of sexual exploitation of a minor, and the trial court sentenced him to a ten-year sentence to be served at 100% in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction, that the trial court improperly admitted the Defendant’s prior conviction for violation of the sex offender registry, and that the trial court erred by failing to charge the jury with attempted sexual exploitation of a minor. After a thorough review of the record and the applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
