Lower Court Summary

The Defendant, Alecia Diane Cooper, pled guilty to one count of driving under the influence, a Class A misdemeanor, and the trial court sentenced her to eleven months and twenty-nine days in confinement at one hundred percent. The trial court provided, however, that it would release the Defendant after ninety days if the Defendant entered and completed an in-patient alcohol treatment facility. On appeal, the Defendant challenges the trial court’s sentence of total confinement, as well as the legality of the provision shortening the Defendant’s confinement if the Defendant completes treatment. After a thorough review of the evidence and the applicable authorities, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
