STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA, PLAINTIFF AND APPELLEE
ROGER DALE MCKAY, JR., DEFENDANT AND APPELLANT
Appeals from the District Court of Ramsey County, Northeast Judicial District, the Honorable Donovan John Foughty, Judge.
[¶1] Roger McKay Jr. appeals from a district court judgment entering his plea of guilty to aggravated assault and from a district court order revoking his probation and sentencing him to 40 years in prison. We affirm.
[¶2] McKay raises two issues on appeal. McKay argues the district court erroneously concluded his guilty plea had a sufficient factual basis because no evidence established the victim of McKay's assault was rendered unconscious or suffered a bone fracture. Substantial evidence exists supporting the district court's finding, and with regard to this issue.
[¶3] McKay also contends the district court erred by considering his guilty plea to aggravated assault when sentencing him on the probation revocation. The district court's sentencing is also affirmed because McKay's derivative second argument is predicated on the alleged error from the first issue on appeal.
[¶4] We affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3).
[¶5] Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J.
Daniel J. Crothers
Carol Ronning Kapsner

[¶6] The Honorable Zane Anderson, D.J., sitting in place of Maring, J., disqualified.
