Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jonathan H. Wardle, Assistant Attorney General; Michael Dunavant, District Attorney General; Joe VanDyke, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): EASTER

Defendant, Gregory Lee Bray, was indicted in two separate cases for delivering Schedule IV substances. After pleading guilty in two separate cases to a total of two counts of delivery of a Schedule IV substance, Defendant was sentenced to an effective sentence of twenty years. Defendant appeals, challenging the trial court?s imposition of consecutive sentences and denial of an alternative sentence. After a review, we determine there is no evidence that the trial court abused its discretion in sentencing Defendant to an effective sentence of twenty years or that the trial court improperly denied alternative sentencing. Consequently, the judgments of the trial court are affirmed.
