All Content


Posted by: Landry Butler on Mar 27, 2018

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Donald A. Bosch (at sentencing hearing) and Douglas A. Trant (on appeal), Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Derek Cullen Lee.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; M. Todd Ridley, Assistant Attorney General; Charme P. Allen, District Attorney General; and Randall Jay Kilby, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Defendant, Derek Cullen Lee, appeals from the Knox County Criminal Court’s denial of his request for judicial diversion. The Defendant contends (1) that the trial court “did not sufficiently weigh all the [required] factors . . . in deciding suitability for diversion”; and (2) that the trial court’s decision to deny his request for judicial diversion was based on the offense that he was convicted of rather than the applicable factors. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
