The Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals is an intermediate appellate court in Tennessee. It hears appeals of criminal cases in the state; appeals of civil cases go to the Tennessee Court of Appeals.

The court consists of 12 judges that sit in three-person panels to hear cases. Decisions of the Court of Criminal Appeals may be appealed to the Tennessee Supreme Court, and capital cases are appealed to the Supreme Court automatically.[1]
