            Connell Lamb appeals his sentences for child endangerment and domestic abuse assault causing bodily injury.  OPINION HOLDS:  We find the State breached the plea agreement in its sentencing recommendation and Lamb’s counsel was ineffective in failing to object to the breach.  We vacate Lamb’s sentences and remand for resentencing before another judge.
