Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Susan Taylor, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Defendant, Janice Gates, pled guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide, a Class C felony. The trial court sentenced the Defendant as a Range I, standard offender, to a concurrent sentence of six years for each conviction and ordered her to serve eighteen months in confinement before being released on probation for the remainder of the sentence. On appeal, the Defendant argues that the trial court erred by denying a sentence of full probation. Following our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
