Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Peter J. Strainse (at trial and on appeal), Nashville, Tennessee, and William L. Moore, Jr. (at trial), Gallatin, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jerry Dixon.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Senior Counsel; Lawrence Ray Whitley, District Attorney General; C. Ronald Blanton, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MONTGOMERY

The Defendant, Jerry Dixon, was convicted by a Sumner County Criminal Court jury of reckless endangerment, a Class A misdemeanor, for which he received a sentence of eleven months, twenty-nine days, with sixty days to be served in jail, 180 days to be served on house arrest, and the balance to be served on probation. See T.C.A. § 39-13-103 (2014). On appeal, he contends that the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction and that the trial court erred in excluding evidence of a witness’s prior inconsistent statement. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
