Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jonathan Davis, Pro Se, Mountain City, Tennessee.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Ruth Anne Thompson, Senior Counsel; and Brent A. Cooper, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

The Appellant, Jonathan Davis, filed a motion to correct an illegal sentence pursuant to Tennessee Rule of Criminal Procedure 36.1, and the Maury County Circuit Court summarily denied the motion. On appeal, the Appellant contends that his sentences for his first degree felony murder convictions are illegal because the trial court ordered consecutive sentencing after the judgments of conviction became final and that the sentences for all of his convictions are illegal because the trial court failed to award pretrial jail credits. Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the Maury County Circuit Court’s denial of the motion.
