Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joshua B. Dougan, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jeremy Peres Duncan.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jonathan H. Wardle, Assistant Attorney General; Jody Pickens, District Attorney General; and Aaron Chaplin, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): DYER

The defendant, Jeremy Peres Duncan, was indicted for two counts of aggravated assault, one count of possession of cocaine with the intent to sell, one count of possession of cocaine with the intent to deliver, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony, one count of being a felon in possession of a handgun, and one count of tampering with evidence. The defendant was convicted as charged for all of the offenses. The trial court sentenced the defendant as a Range II offender and imposed an effective twenty-four-year sentence. On appeal, the defendant argues the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions for aggravated assault, possession of cocaine with the intent to sell and/or deliver, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony. The defendant also challenges the trial court’s evidentiary rulings regarding evidence of the defendant’s gang affiliation. Finally, the defendant challenges the trial court’s imposition of consecutive sentences. After our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
