Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

John R. Holton, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Sean Farris.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Alexander C. Vey, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; Dru Carpenter and Gavin Smith, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A jury convicted the Defendant, Sean Farris, of aggravated robbery, and the trial court sentenced the Defendant to serve ten years and six months in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Defendant asserts that: (1) the trial court improperly allowed the admission of prior convictions; (2) the trial court unreasonably limited cross-examination of the victim; (3) the evidence is insufficient to sustain his conviction; and (4) his sentence is excessive. We affirm the trial court’s judgment.
