Highlights from Current Issue

 In this appeal, Appellant asked the Court to determine whether his “conviction” occurred at the time the jury entered its verdict or at the time the judge entered judgment. For T.C.A. 40-29-204, the Court held that “conviction” occurred when the judgment is entered on a jury verdict.

 Several issues are raised in this consolidated appeal. One of the issues on appeal stems from Appellant Burford’s contention that the trial court erred by failing to provide a limiting instruction to the jury. After a review of the record and applicable law, the Court found that although the trial court erred, Appellant had not been harmed by the error.

 In this appeal, Defendant claims that the trial court erred in admitting the results from his blood draw because the State did not establish proper chain of custody. The Court held that the results from his blood draw were admissible. Additionally, the Court explained that real evidence is often handled by more than one person and each person who handles evidence is considered a link in the chain of custody. While the State should sufficiently establish each link, the State is not required to establish beyond all possible doubt facts which exclude every possibility of tampering.
