REAHT LAKENDRIC SMITH, Appellant v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee

No. 05-10-01547-CR No. 05-10-01550-CR

Decided: February 24, 2011

Before Justices O'Neill, FitzGerald, and Lang

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Opinion By Justice FitzGerald

Reaht Lakendric Smith was convicted by the trial court of three aggravated robbery offenses and two unauthorized use of a motor vehicle (UUMV) offenses.   Punishment was assessed at fifteen years' imprisonment for each aggravated robbery conviction and two years' confinement in a state jail facility for each UUMV conviction.   The trial court also assessed one $1,000 fine.   The sentences were imposed in open court on August 6, 2010.   No motions for new trial were filed in the cases.   Therefore, appellant's notice of appeal was due by Tuesday, September 7, 2010.   See Tex.R.App. P. 4.1(a), (26.2(a)(1).   Appellant filed his notice of appeal on September 21, 2010.   However, appellant did not file an extension of time to file the notice of appeal within the fifteen-day period after the deadline for filing the notice of appeal.   See Tex.R.App. P. 26.3. Because appellant's notices of appeal are untimely, we have no jurisdiction over the appeals.   See Slaton v. State, 981 S.W.2d 208, 210 (Tex.Crim.App.1998) (per curiam);  Boyd v. State, 971 S.W.2d 603, 605-06 (Tex.App.-Dallas 1998, no pet).

We GRANT the joint motion to determine jurisdiction, and conclude we do not have jurisdiction.

We dismiss the appeals for want of jurisdiction.

KERRY P. FITZGERALD JUSTICE
