Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Meredith DeVault, Senior Counsel; Robert Carter, District Attorney General; Weakley E. Barnard, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Marshall County jury convicted the Defendant, Kimberly Wilson Wentzel, of six counts of prescription fraud and two counts of identity theft. After a sentencing hearing, the trial court sentenced the Defendant as a persistent offender and imposed concurrent eleven-year sentences for each of the Defendant’s eight felony convictions. The trial court ordered the Defendant to serve her entire sentence in the Tennessee Department of Correction. The Defendant now appeals, contending that the trial court erred when it denied her request for alternative sentencing. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we conclude that the trial court properly denied alternative sentencing.
