STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, UNPUBLISHED October 30, 1998 Plaintiff-Appellee, v No. 203172 Kalamazoo Circuit Court LC No. 95-001166 FH ROWNE HENTON JOHNSON, Defendant-Appellant. Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Defendant pleaded guilty to forgery, MCL 750.248; MSA 28.445, and was sentenced to three years’ probation with six months of this probationary sentence to be served in the county jail. Defendant subsequently pleaded nolo contendere to violating the terms of his probation and was sentenced to two to fourteen years’ imprisonment. Defendant appeals as of right. We affirm. The trial court did not abuse its sentencing discretion and defendant’s sentence is proportionate to the offense and offender, particularly in light of the circumstances surrounding the probation violation, defendant’s assaultive criminal history and defendant’s continued involvement in criminal activity while on probation.
