Kristin B. Green, Shelbyville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Kevin Lee Johnson.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Lacy Wilber, Assistant Attorney General; Robert Carter, District Attorney General; and Andrew Lee Wright and Richard Aron Cawley, Assistant District Attorney Generals, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The defendant was convicted of being a habitual motor vehicle offender, driving under the influence, and failure to appear and was sentenced to an effective term of nine years and six months. On appeal, the defendant argues that the trial court abused its discretion in imposing the sentence because it is excessive and contrary to law. After reviewing the record, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
