Judge(s): PAGE

Appellant, George Robert Hamby, was convicted of aggravated robbery, a Class B felony. The trial court sentenced appellant as a Range II offender to twelve years in confinement. On appeal, appellant argues that: (1) the trial court erred in not accepting a negotiated guilty plea; (2) the trial court erred in denying appellant?s motion for judgment of acquittal; (3) the evidence was insufficient to support his conviction; and (4) the trial court erred in sentencing. Following our review of the evidence and the applicable law, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
