Judge(s): PAGE

Appellant, Ashley Aaron Selke, pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary and received a twoyear sentence for each count, to be served concurrently. The record reflects that appellant received pretrial jail credit for time served in confinement, and the remainder of his sentence was suspended to probation. A violation of probation warrant was subsequently filed, alleging that appellant had committed new offenses while on probation. The trial court revoked his probation, and this appeal follows. Appellant now alleges that the trial court abused its discretion by ordering appellant to serve the remainder of his sentence in confinement rather than extending appellant’s probation or placing appellant in the community corrections program. After our review of the parties’ briefs, the record, and the applicable law, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
