Dawn Deaner, District Public Defender; Emma Rae Tennant (on appeal) and Patrick Hakes (at guilty plea), Assistant Public Defenders, for the appellant, Mandricuss Lashon Robertson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Senior Counsel; Glenn R. Funk, District Attorney General; and Nathan McGregor, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): EASTER

Defendant, Mandricuss Lashon Robertson, pled guilty to twelve counts of aggravated burglary and an agreed-upon effective sentence of twenty years as a Range II, multiple offender in exchange for the dismissal of the remaining twenty-three counts of the presentment. The trial court denied an alternative sentence after a lengthy sentencing hearing. Defendant now appeals. After a review, we conclude that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in imposing a sentence involving incarceration. Accordingly, the judgments of the trial court are affirmed.
