Judge(s): PAGE

A Chester County jury convicted appellant, Nathanael Little, on count 1 for selling more than one-half ounce of marijuana, a Class E felony; on count 2 for delivering more than one-half ounce of marijuana, a Class E felony; on count 3 for possession of more than one-half ounce of marijuana with intent to sell, a Class E felony; on count 4 for possession of more than onehalf ounce of marijuana with intent to deliver, a Class E felony; and on count 5 for possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use, a Class A misdemeanor. After appropriately merging some of the counts, the trial court sentenced appellant to an effective sentence of two years, eleven months, and twenty-nine days for two Class E felonies and one Class A misdemeanor. On appeal, appellant argues that the trial court erred by failing to rule on his motion to suppress and by improperly sentencing him. Upon review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
