Judge(s): PAGE

Appellant, Rudy Vincent Dunn, entered a plea without a recommended sentence to one count of possession of not less than one-half ounce nor more than ten pounds of marijuana with intent to sell or deliver, a Class E felony. Following a separate sentencing hearing, the trial court sentenced him to serve one year and ninety days in confinement. In this appeal, appellant challenges the trial court’s denial of his request for alternative sentencing. Upon our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
