[¶1] Mark Christian Palmer appealed from a district court order denying his motion to dismiss a probation revocation petition and revoking his probation. On appeal, Palmer argues the district court abused its discretion in denying his motion and revoking his probation because he was still incarcerated when the petition for revocation was filed and therefore his probation had not yet commenced. We affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(4) and (7). See State v. Bender, 1998 ND 72, ¶ 15, 576 N.W.2d 210 (holding N.D.C.C. § 12.1-32-07(6) allows revocation at any time prior to the expiration of probation and does not prohibit revocation if the defendant violates a condition of probation while still incarcerated).
