Posted by: Landry Butler on Feb 17, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Leticia F. Alexander (on appeal), Nashville, Tennessee, and Collier W. Goodlett (at trial), Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Timothy Dunn.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; M. Todd Ridley, Assistant Attorney General; John W. Carney, Jr., District Attorney General; and Jason White, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Robertson County jury convicted the Defendant, Timothy Dunn, of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school and delivery of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school. The trial court merged the two convictions and sentenced the Defendant to serve seventeen years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Defendant argues that: (1) the trial court erred when it denied his request for a continuance; (2) the trial court erred when it allowed Detective Eddie Stewart to testify when he was not listed on the indictment; (3) the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction; and (4) his sentence is excessive. After review, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
