Posted by: Landry Butler on Jul 6, 2017

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Mark Mesler, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Kerry Granderson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Katherine C. Redding, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Bridgett Stigger, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The Defendant, Kerry Granderson, was convicted by a Shelby County Criminal Court jury of aggravated robbery, a Class B felony, and was sentenced to eleven years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Defendant argues that: (1) the trial court erred in admitting a witness’s prior statement to police as substantive evidence; (2) the trial court erred in admitting jailhouse phone calls made by him; and (3) the evidence is insufficient to sustain his conviction. After review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
