THOMAS v. THE STATE.
52456.
CLARK, Judge.
Burglary. Stewart Superior Court. Before Judge Blanks.
Defendant entered guilty pleas to each of three burglary charges lodged against him. He was sentenced by the trial judge to three years for each offense to be served consecutively. Defendant's sole enumeration of error asserts that the sentences imposed were "unreasonable" in view of the nature of the crime.
This court is not empowered to modify a sentence which is within the statutory limits and lawfully imposed. See McCullough v. State, 11 Ga. App. 612, 618 (6) (76 SE 393); Code 27-2502, 27-2503, 27-2510. Since defendant has urged no legal basis for a reversal of the judgment of sentence, this court will not disturb the trial judge's discretion in this matter. We note, however, that the procedures established by Ga. L. 1974, pp. 352, 358, codified as 27-2511.1 regarding the review of sentences offer an available remedy to defendant's claim of excessive harshness.
Claude N. Morris, District Attorney, for appellee.
Jesse DuBose, for appellant.
SUBMITTED JULY 13, 1976 -- DECIDED JULY 16, 1976.
