Defendant, Robert Carlyle Clanton, was convicted by a Bedford County jury of ten drug-related offenses for the sale of methamphetamine to a confidential informant. The trial court imposed a total effective sentence of twenty-three years and six months. On appeal, Defendant's sole issue is that the trial court imposed an excessively lengthy sentence. Upon our review of the record, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
