Following the defendant’s open guilty pleas to two counts of driving under the influence (“DUI”) (fifth and sixth offenses), see T.C.A. § 55-10-401(2008); three counts of driving while his license was revoked (“DWLR”) (one fourth and two fifth offenses), see id. § 55-10- 504; one count of violating the implied consent law, see id. § 55-10-406; one count of violating the open container law, see id. § 55-10-416; and one count of reckless driving, see id. § 55-10-205, the Lincoln County Circuit Court imposed an effective sentence of eight years’ incarceration as a Range II, multiple offender. On appeal, the defendant challenges the length and alignment of the sentences. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
