Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen W. Grace, Nashville, Tennessee, (at suppression hearing), and Randall W. Burton, Nashville, Tennessee, (on appeal), for the Defendant-Appellant, Darryl Wilkins Burton.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; James E. Gaylord, Senior Counsel; Kim R. Helper, District Attorney General; and Tristan Poorman, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Defendant-Appellant, Darryl Wilkins Burton, entered a guilty plea to driving under the influence (DUI) in exchange for a sentence of eleven months and twenty-nine days to be served on probation after the service of forty-eight hours in the Williamson County jail. The Defendant reserved a certified question of law challenging the denial of his motion to suppress, which was based upon an unconstitutional seizure. Because the Defendant failed to properly reserve the certified question, we dismiss the appeal.
