v.
JAMES RAYMOND, A/K/A RICHARD COFIELD, APPELLANT



No. 2148 October Term, 1977, Appeal from the Judgment of Sentence of June 30, 1977 of the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, Trial Division, Criminal Section, Nos. 846-850, December, 1973

Lee Mandell, Philadelphia, for appellant.

Eric B. Henson, Assistant District Attorney, Philadelphia, for Commonwealth, appellee.

Cercone, Hester and Hoffman, JJ.

Author: Per Curiam

[ 261 Pa. Super. Page 109]

Appellant was serving a term of five years probation in lieu of sentence for various offenses when he was arrested, charged, and convicted of narcotics possession, robbery, and other related offenses. After a hearing, the lower court revoked appellant's probation and sentenced him to consecutive terms of imprisonment totaling 15 to 52 years. Appellant now contends that this sentence violates double jeopardy. This contention is without merit. Commonwealth v. Cole, 222 Pa. Super. 229, 294 A.2d 824 (1972). See also Commonwealth v. Colding, 482 Pa. 112, 115-121, 393 A.2d 404, 406-407 (1978).

Judgments of sentence affirmed.
