Posted by: Landry Butler on May 3, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Cameron L. Hyder, Elizabethton, Tennessee (on appeal), and Dan Smith, Jonesborough, Tennessee (at trial), for the appellant, Bobby Joe Campbell.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; Barry P. Staubus, District Attorney General; and Benjamin Rowe, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Bobby Joe Campbell, appeals his Sullivan County Criminal Court jury conviction of second offense driving under the influence (“DUI”), arguing that the trial court committed plain error by failing to declare a mistrial following certain comments from a member of the jury, that the evidence was insufficient to support his conviction, and that the sentence is excessive. We affirm the judgment of the trial court but remand the case for the entry of a corrected judgment that reflects the 180-day period of confinement ordered by the trial court.
