MEMORANDUM OPINION

BUSSEY, Judge:

[637 P.2d 1265]

¶1 On appeal from the order of the District Court of Stephens County, revoking his suspended sentence in Case No. CRF-77-246, the appellant, Gary Don Caudill, asserts two (2) assignments of error.

¶2 As his first contention, the appellant alleges that the decision of the trial court revoking the last ten (10) years of a twelve (12) year sentence, is not supported by the evidence. The court found that the appellant had violated the terms and conditions of his probation, and the same justified revocation of his suspended sentence.

¶3 The appellant lastly contends that the trial court abused its discretion in revoking the ten (10) year suspended sentence. We have repeatedly held that the question of revocation, in whole or in part, is vested within the sound discretion of the trial court. Cooper v. State, 599 P.2d 419 (Okl.Cr. 1979); and, Barthiume v. State, 549 P.2d 366 (Okl.Cr. 1976). Our review of the record fails to disclose an abuse of discretion.

¶4 For the above and foregoing reasons, the order of the district court revoking the suspended judgment and sentence in CRF-77-246 is AFFIRMED.
