Judge(s): MCMULLEN

Defendant-Appellant, Darius J. Hunt, appeals from the Knox County Criminal Court’s order revoking his probation. Hunt pled guilty to one count of possession of half a gram or more of cocaine with intent to sell. He received a suspended sentence of eight years following one year of confinement. On appeal, Hunt claims that the trial court abused its discretion in revoking his probation and in ordering him to serve the sentence in confinement. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
