Criminal Practice – Probation Revocation – Frivolous Appeal 

After one probation violation resulted in the extension of her probation, defendant reportedly violated probation three more times. After a hearing, the trial court found that defendant had committed a criminal offense, revoked her probation, activated her suspended sentence, and reduced her prison sentence from a period of 17 to 30 months to a period of 15 to 27 months. On this record, defendant’s appeal is frivolous. 

Appeal dismissed.
