Judge(s): TIPTON

The Defendant, Jody Candace Seaman, pleaded guilty to identity theft, a Class D felony, second offense driving under the influence (DUI), a Class A misdemeanor, and fifth offense driving on a revoked license, a Class A misdemeanor. See T.C.A. §§ 39-14-150 (2010), 55- 10-401 (2012), 55-50-504 (2012). The trial court sentenced her as a Range I, standard offender to four years for identity theft, eleven months, twenty-nine days for second offense DUI, and eleven months, twenty-nine days for fifth offense driving on a revoked license. The court ordered partial consecutive sentences, for an effective sentence of four years, eleven months, and twenty-nine days. On appeal, she contends that the trial court erred by ordering consecutive sentences. We affirm the judgments of the trial court.
