STATE OF TENNESSEE v. JONATHAN ABERNATHY, JR. Court:TCCA Attorneys: Stanley K. Pierchoski, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jonathan Abernathy, Jr. Paul G. Summers, Attorney General and Reporter; Richard Dunavant, Assistant Attorney General; and Mike Bottoms, District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee. Judge: WELLES First Paragraph: The Defendant, Jonathan Abernathy, Jr., was convicted by a jury of tampering with evidence. In this appeal, the Defendant argues that the trial court erred by not suppressing testimony of police officers regarding the actions they witnessed the Defendant take during their search of his residence. He contends that the search was illegal because the search warrant that the officers executed at his residence was invalid; therefore, the officers should have been precluded from testifying as to what they witnessed while they were at the Defendant's residence. We affirm the judgment of the trial court. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCCA/abernathyj.wpd
