Judge(s): THOMAS

Following the Defendant’s, Jeffery Dwight Ray’s, guilty-pleaded conviction for aggravated statutory rape, the trial court imposed a sentence of three years’ incarceration. The Defendant appeals, arguing that he is a suitable candidate for alternative sentencing pursuant to the statutory considerations outlined in Tennessee Code Annotated section 40-35-103. Following our review, we affirm the trial court’s alternative sentencing decision.
