[ 222 Pa. Super. Page 234]
This case presents the issue of whether a trial judge subjects an appellant to double jeopardy when he sentences appellant to a prison term of eight to twenty years, after appellant has violated a three-year term of probation, originally imposed in lieu of sentencing.
In view of Commonwealth v. Cole, 222 Pa. Superior Ct. 229, 294 A.2d 824 (1972), we hold that appellant was not placed in double jeopardy, and therefore, the order of the lower court is affirmed.
