Judge: TIPTON

First Paragraph:

The defendant, David Sharpe, was convicted by a jury in the Hickman
County Circuit Court of sexual battery, a Class E felony.  He was
sentenced as a Range I, standard offender to one year, with probation
after serving sixty days in confinement.  In this appeal of right, the
defendant contends (1) that the evidence is insufficient to prove
sexual battery, (2) that he is entitled to full probation, and (3)
that he should be designated as an especially mitigated offender.  We
affirm the trial court.
