Tullos v. State

Texas Court of Appeals
698 S.W.2d 488 (1985)


Facts

Eddie Tullos (defendant) stabbed Michael Smith in the back with an icepick-like instrument. When Michael’s father, Horace Smith, attempted to come to Michael’s aid armed with a hammer, Tullos shot Horace. Tullos was charged with two aggravated assaults, and entered a plea of guilty for both. The indictment for the assault on Michael had alleged that Tullos had threatened Michael with the use of a deadly weapon. After sentencing, Tullos appealed, alleging that the state had failed to provide sufficient proof to support the guilty plea for the charge of assault against Michael.
