State of Tennessee v. Justin McDowell

Case Number

In 2020, the Defendant, Justin McDowell, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to sell
or deliver less than .5 grams of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a Drug Free Zone, a park. The
trial court imposed an effective sentence of five years of incarceration. The Defendant
filed a motion for resentencing pursuant to an amendment to the Drug Free Zone Act. See
T.C.A. § 39-17-432. The trial court held a hearing and denied relief. On appeal, the
Petitioner contends that his motion for resentencing should have been granted. After
review, we dismiss the appeal.
