Posted by: Landry Butler on Mar 27, 2018

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robbie T. Beal and Erin W. Nations, (on appeal); and Ernest W. Williams (at trial), Franklin, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jeffrey A. Jones.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; M. Todd Ridley, Assistant Attorney General; Kim R. Helper, District Attorney General; and Tristan R.P. Poorman, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The Defendant, Jeffery A. Jones, pled guilty in the Williamson County Circuit Court to DUI .08 % or greater, reserving as a certified question of law whether the results of his forced blood draw should have been suppressed because the affidavit in support of the search warrant contained reckless falsities and the form nature of the search warrant and affidavit prevented the magistrate from making an informed judgment as to probable cause. Following our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
