Judge(s): GLENN

In the Bedford County Circuit Court, the defendant, Jason Larry Russo, pled guilty to second offense driving on a revoked license, a Class A misdemeanor, and was found guilty by a jury of promotion of the manufacture of methamphetamine, a Class D felony. He was sentenced to eleven months and twenty-nine days for the driving offense and twelve years for the drug offense, to be served consecutively. On appeal, the defendant argues that the trial court erred in imposing consecutive sentences. After review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
