from the Criminal Court for Shelby County No. 14-06502 J.
Weber McCraw, Judge
Pamela Moses, was placed on intensive probation following the
entry of guilty pleas to several offenses. The State filed
two petitions to revoke her probation. After a lengthy
hearing, the trial court revoked Defendant's probation
and ordered the "original judgment of conviction"
into execution with additional jail credit for time served in
confinement. Defendant argues on appeal that the trial court
improperly revoked probation. For the following reasons, we
affirm the judgment of the trial court.
R. App. P. 3 Appeal as of Right; Judgments of the Criminal
Thomas (at hearing) and Matthew C. Culotta (on appeal),
Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Pamela Jeanine Moses.
Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Robert
W. Wilson, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich,
District Attorney General; and Jennifer Nichols and Gavin
Smith, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the
appellee, State of Tennessee.
Timothy L. Easter, J., delivered the opinion of the court, in
which James Curwood Witt, Jr., and Alan E. Glenn JJ., joined.

false statements under oath to an agent of the Tennessee
Bureau of Investigation ("TBI"); repeatedly
contacting the judge both in person and on social media; and
jumping out of a police car after having been arrested. In
exchange for the guilty pleas, Defendant received an
effective sentence of seven years to be served on supervised
probation. Id. at *4.

denied the motion, and this Court affirmed that decision on
appeal, remanding the matter to the trial court for
correction of clerical errors. Id. at *13-14.
