LASONIA ROCHELLE DARTON, Appellant v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee

No. 05–10–01430–CR

Decided: November 30, 2011

Before Justices FitzGerald, Francis, and Lang–Miers

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Opinion By Justice FitzGerald

A jury convicted LaSonia Rochelle Darton of reckless injury to a child and assessed punishment at twenty years' imprisonment.   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 her right to file a pro se response, but she 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) (court of appeals's duty is to determine whether there are any arguable issues, and, if so, to remand the case to the trial court so that new counsel may be appointed to address those issues).   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.
