Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; Robert Carter, District Attorney General; and Weakley E. Barnard, Assistant District Attorney General for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

The Defendant, William Avery McKnight, pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary and theft of property over $1000, with the trial court to determine the length and manner of the sentences. The trial court ordered the Defendant to serve an effective sentence of eight years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. The Defendant appeals, asserting that the trial court erred when it denied his request for alternative sentencing. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgments.
