Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jacob W. Fendley, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Raymond Arthur Klein.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Assistant Attorney General; John W Carney, District Attorney General; and David H. Findley, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): DYER

The defendant, Raymond Arthur Klein, appeals his convictions and sentences for aggravated sexual battery and criminal attempt to commit rape of a child. The defendant argues there is insufficient evidence to support the jury’s verdict. Additionally, the defendant argues a violation of his Sixth Amendment right to confront the witnesses against him because he was not permitted to introduce the results of a polygraph examination from a prior investigation. Finally, the defendant argues his sentence was improperly ordered to be served consecutively to a prior sexual battery conviction. Following our review, we affirm the judgments and sentence of the trial court.
