REGINALD JAWANN SELLS, Appellant v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee

No. 05–11–00741–CR

-- May 02, 2012

Before Chief Justice Wright and Justices Bridges and Myers

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Opinion By Chief Justice Wright

Reginald Jawann Sells appeals from the revocation of his community supervision.   The trial court assessed punishment at nine years' imprisonment.   On appeal, appellant's attorney filed a brief in which she concludes the appeal is wholly frivolous and without merit.   The brief meets the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967).   The brief presents a professional evaluation of the record showing why, in effect, there are no arguable grounds to advance.   See High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807, 811 (Tex.Crim.App. [Panel Op.] 1978).   Counsel delivered a copy of the brief to appellant.   We advised appellant of his right to file a pro se response, but he did not file a pro se response.

We have reviewed the record and counsel's brief.   See Bledsoe v. State, 178 S.W.3d 824, 827 (Tex.Crim.App.2005) (explaining appellate court's duty in Anders cases).   We agree the appeal is frivolous and without merit.   We find nothing in the record that might arguably support the appeal.

We affirm the trial court's judgment.
