Following a jury trial in the Circuit Court for Washington County, appellant, Rebecca Walters, was convicted of driving while impaired by alcohol and refusing to take a breathalyzer test. The court sentenced appellant, as a subsequent offender, to one year with all but ten days suspended for driving while impaired, and sixty days, concurrent, for refusing to take a breathalyzer test. Additionally, the court ordered appellant to complete three years of probation with the first eighteen months supervised by the Drinking Driver Monitor Program.

Appellant raises a single question on appeal: “Did the trial judge err in sentencing Appellant as a subsequent offender where the notice requirement has not been met?”

Because we conclude that the State’s Attorney properly complied with the notice requirement, we affirm the judgments of the circuit court.
