Judge(s): PAGE

Appellant, Roy Brian Avans, appeals the trial court’s revocation of his probation and reinstatement of his effective ten-year sentence in the Tennessee Department of Correction. Appellant contends that the trial court abused its discretion by revoking his probation and ordering service of the entire sentence without properly considering other available options. We discern no error and affirm the judgment of the trial court.
