OPINION

Appellant Kyserius R. Timms appeals from four separate, concurrent sentences of twelve months’ confinement. In each case, the trial court adjudicated appellant guilty of burglary of a building based on (1) his plea of true to the allegation that he violated his deferred adjudication community supervision by committing the new offense of theft and (2) the trial court’s finding that he failed to participate fully in theft intervention classes that were a condition of his community supervision. Appellant brings a single issue contending that his sentences are excessive and disproportionate. Because appellant did not make this complaint in the trial court,*fn1 he has failed to preserve it for our review. See Tex. R. App. P. 33.1(a)(1); Mercado v. State, 718 S.W.2d 291, 296 (Tex. Crim. App. 1986) (“As a general rule, an appellant may not assert error pertaining to his sentence or punishment where he failed to object or otherwise raise such error in the trial court.”); Thompson v. State, 243 S.W.3d 774, 775-76 (Tex. App.–Fort Worth 2008, pet. ref’d).

Accordingly, we overrule his sole issue and affirm the trial court’s judgments.
