State of Tennessee v. Michael Shane Springer
Lower court summary:
The Defendant pled guilty to two counts of rape of a child and reserved the following
certified question: “Whether the Trial Court erred in failing to grant the defendant’s Motion
to Dismiss alleging the State violated the provisions of the Interstate Agreement on Detainers
(T.C.A. 40-31-101 et seq, U.S. Code Title 18-App) and the anti-shuttling provisions therein
pursuant to Alabama v. Bozeman, 53 U.S. 146 (2001).” For differing reasons, the
majority of this panel affirms the Defendant’s convictions.
