Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Edward C. Miller, District Public Defender, and Rebecca V. Lee, Assistant Public Defender, Dandridge, Tennessee, for the appellant, Cecil Glenn Dobbs, Jr.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; James B. Dunn, District Attorney General; and Charles L. Murphy, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Defendant, Cecil G. Dobbs, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and theft of property valued at less than $500 in return for a sentence of seven years of split confinement with two years of incarceration followed by five years of probation. A probation violation warrant was issued based upon subsequently incurred charges and, after a hearing, the trial court revoked the Defendant’s probation sentence, ordering that he serve his sentence in confinement. On appeal, the Defendant asserts that the trial court abused its discretion when it revoked his probation sentence and by “not allowing him to be heard” at the probation revocation hearing. After review, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
