IN RE: Amendment to Supreme Court Rule 7, Section 6.04 Filed May 16, 2001 Court:TSC - Rules http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TSC_Rules/rul7s604.wpd
STATE OF TENNESSEE v. NOAH J. LOVE Court:TCCA Attorneys: Noah J. Love, Clifton, Tennessee, pro se. Paul G. Summers, Attorney General & Reporter; J. Ross Dyer, Assistant Attorney General; and Dean Ferraro, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee. Judge: WADE First Paragraph: The defendant, Noah J. Love, appeals the trial court's denial of his motion to correct his sentence. The single issue presented for review is whether the trial court properly denied relief. Because the trial court had no jurisdiction to amend the sentence four years after the defendant had been transferred to the Department of Correction, the judgment is reversed. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCCA/lovenoahj.wpd
STATE OF TENNESSEE v. JASHUA SHANNON SIDES Court:TCCA Attorneys: Paul G. Summers, Attorney General and Reporter; R. Stephen Jobe, Assistant Attorney General; William H. Cox III, District Attorney General; and Dean C. Ferraro, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellant, State of Tennessee. Mike A. Little, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jashua Shannon Sides. Judge: RILEY First Paragraph: This is a state appeal from the suppression of evidence. The defendant was indicted for driving under the influence (DUI), second offense, and leaving the scene of an accident. The defendant filed a motion to suppress which the trial court granted. In this appeal, the state alleges that the trial court erroneously concluded the defendant was unlawfully arrested, or, in the alternative, the order of suppression was overbroad. Upon review of the record, we modify the order of suppression to allow evidence gathered prior to the unlawful arrest. We remand for further proceedings. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCCA/sidesjs_opn.wpd
