Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Ruth Anne Thompson, Senior Counsel; Robert James Carter, District Attorney General; and Hollynn Eubanks, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Defendant, Jonathan Wayne Utz, pled guilty to one count of aggravated sexual battery, a Class B felony. See Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-13-504. The trial court sentenced the Defendant as a Range I, standard offender to a term of imprisonment of nine years and six months to be served at one hundred percent. In this appeal as of right, the Defendant contends that “the sentence in this case is excessive and contrary to the law.” Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
