Court of Appeals of Texas, Houston (1st Dist.).

----------- Ivan Ramirez Lopez, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee

NO. 01-09-00289-CR

Decided: May 27, 2010

Panel consists of Justices Jennings, Hanks, and Bland.


Appellant, Ivan Ramirez Lopez, pleaded guilty to the felony offense of possession of a controlled substance, namely cocaine.   The trial court, in accordance with appellant's plea bargain agreement with the State, deferred adjudication of his guilt, placed appellant on community supervision for two years, assessed a fine of $500, and ordered appellant to serve 200 hours of community service.

After the trial court sentenced appellant to the punishment that fell within the terms of the plea bargain agreement, it certified that this case is a plea-bargain case and the defendant had no right to appeal.   Appellant did not request the trial court's permission to appeal any pre-trial matters, and the trial court did not give him permission to appeal.

We conclude that the certification of the right of appeal filed by the trial court is supported by the record and that appellant has no right of appeal due to the agreed plea bargain.   See Tex.R.App. P. 25.2(a).   Because appellant has no right of appeal, we must dismiss this appeal without further action.   See Chavez v. State, 183 S.W.3d 675, 680 (Tex.Crim.App.2006).

Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
