State of Tennessee v. Gary Harris
03C01-9510-CC-00319
Authoring Judge: Judge Paul G. Summers
Trial Court Judge: Judge Ben W. Hooper, II

A jury found Gary Harris guilty of manufacturing marijuana in violation of Tennessee Code Annotated 39-17-417. Harris appeals and presents the following issues for our review:

I. Whether the evidence is sufficient to sustain the conviction; and
II. Whether the verdict is supported by the weight of the evidence.

We affirm.

Grainger County Court of Criminal Appeals 09/06/96
State of Tennessee v. Alfred B. Rollins, et al. - Concurring
01C01-9304-CR-1282
Authoring Judge: Judge Joseph M. Tipton
Trial Court Judge: Judge Walter C. Kurtz

I concur in the result reached in the majority opinion. I write separately, though, to express my strong belief that the appellant’s conduct in this case is free of any blame, given the context of the question in issue. In this respect, whether I or anyone else would have found a more circumspect way to prove the point or make a record is largely irrelevant. Likewise, whether all the evidence -- viewed in hindsight -- actually proved the points sought to be proved relative to the appellant’s question is largely irrelevant.
