I. Introduction

Appellant Joel D. Miles received deferred adjudication community supervision after he pleaded guilty to assault causing injury to a family member and possession of less than one gram of heroin. The State subsequently filed petitions to proceed to adjudication in both cases, alleging that Appellant committed a new robbery offense in violation of one of the conditions of his community supervision. Appellant pleaded not true to the new offense, and following the presentation of evidence, the trial court found the State’s allegation true and adjudicated Appellant’s guilt in both cases. The trial court sentenced Appellant to twenty years’ confinement for assault causing injury to a family member and 180 days’ confinement for heroin possession. Appellant contends in one point on appeal that the trial court abused its discretion by revoking his community supervision and adjudicating his guilt in both cases because the evidence is insufficient to establish that he was the perpetrator of the new offense. We affirm.
