Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court decides one today, rules sentence here does not warrant appellate revision

In Kyle Bess v. State of Indiana, a 2-page, 5-0,, per curiam opinion, the Court concludes that although a "Court of Appeals majority found his fully executed sentence inappropriate under Indiana Appellate Rule 7(B)":

Our collective judgment is that the sentence imposed by the trial court in this case is not inappropriate under Appellate Rule 7(B) and does not warrant appellate revision. Accordingly, we grant transfer, see Ind. Appellate Rule 58(A), and affirm the sentence imposed by the trial court.
