State of Tennessee v. Terry Bowen - Concurring
01C01-9505-CC-00158
Authoring Judge: Judge Joseph M. Tipton
Trial Court Judge: Judge W. Charles Lee

I concur in the results reached and most of the reasoning used in the majority opinion. However, although I agree that the collateral fact rule essentially remains viable through Rule 403, Tenn. R. Evid., I question its use in this case relative to the appellant’s attempt to impeach Mr. Farrar’s testimony through extrinsic evidencethat Farrar’s son had previously been charged with the appellant and that his son’s charges had been retired on motion of the state.
