Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen C. Bush, District Public Defender; Barry W. Kuhn (on appeal), John Zastrow and Joshua Stanton (at trial), Assistant Public Defenders, for the appellant, Willie Morgan.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Katherine C. Redding, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Tyler B. Parks and Gavin Smith, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Willie Morgan, was convicted by a Shelby County Criminal Court jury of aggravated robbery, a Class B felony, and was sentenced to a term of eleven years. On appeal, the defendant argues that the evidence is insufficient to sustain his conviction and that the trial court erred in excluding testimony about the victim’s compensation fund. After review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
