Court of Appeals of Texas, Dallas.

CAROLINE WILSON–MYRIE, Appellant v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee

No. 05–10–00754–CR

Decided: March 31, 2011

Before Chief Justice Wright and Justices Francis and Myers

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Caroline Wilson–Myrie was convicted of contributing to the nonattendance of her child at school, and the trial court assessed a $300 fine.   See generally Tex. Educ.Code Ann. § 25.093 (West 2006).   Appellant, who is representing herself in this appeal, filed a brief that was wholly non-compliant with Texas Rule of Appellate Procedure 38.1.   By letter dated December 13, 2010, the Court notified appellant that the brief was wholly deficient, and we directed appellant to file, within ten days, a brief that corrected the deficiencies noted in the December 13, 2010 letter.   We warned that failure to comply would result in the Court striking the deficient brief and submitting the appeal without briefs.   See Tex.R.App. P. 38.8(b).  Appellant failed to file an amended brief, and we struck the deficient brief and ordered the appeal submitted without briefs.

Absent briefs, no issues are before us.   Finding no fundamental error, we affirm the trial court's judgment.
