Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Lance R. Chism, Memphis, Tennessee (on appeal); and Didi Christie, Trenton, Tennessee, for the appellant, Cameo Antoinette Edwards.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Caitlin Smith, Assistant Attorney General; Garry G. Brown, District Attorney General; and Jerald M. Campbell and Hillary Parham, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

Following a bench trial, the Defendant, Cameo Antoinette Edwards, was convicted in the Haywood County Circuit Court of assault and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, both Class A misdemeanors. The trial court subsequently sentenced her to concurrent terms of eleven months, twenty-nine days for each conviction, suspended to supervised probation following service of thirty days in the county jail. On appeal, the Defendant argues that the evidence is insufficient to sustain her convictions and that the trial court erred by not granting her full probation. Following our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
