Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; James M. Taylor, District Attorney General; and David Shinn, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): McMULLEN

Pursuant to his plea agreement, the Defendant-Appellant, Curtis Colston, entered a guilty plea to aggravated assault and received a sentence of six years, with the manner of service to be determined by the trial court. In this appeal, Colston argues that the trial court abused its discretion by denying his request for an alternative sentence. Upon our review, we affirm the sentence and remand for entry of a corrected judgment.
