Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Rodney Dewayne Hymes, alias Rodney Dewayne Hynes, appeals the Hamilton County Criminal Court’s revocation of his probation and reinstatement of his original sentences in the Department of Correction for his 2007 and 2008 convictions for violation of the Habitual Motor Vehicle Offender (“HMVO”) Act. The defendant also challenges the trial court’s sentencing determinations in five new cases, arguing that the trial court abused its discretion by failing to give sufficient weight to his potential and amenability for rehabilitation. Following our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
