Judge(s): OGLE

The appellant, Edward Fayte Webster, IV, pled guilty in the Marshall County Circuit Court to nine counts of burglary, seven counts of felony vandalism, ten counts of misdemeanor vandalism, and eight counts of misdemeanor theft. Pursuant to the plea agreement, the trial court was to determine the length and manner of service of the sentences. After a sentencing hearing, the appellant received an effective four-year sentence to be served in confinement. On appeal, the appellant contends that the trial court abused its discretion by denying his request for alternative sentencing. Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
