CHRISTOPHER RAMIRO MIRELES, Appellant v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee

No. 05–12–00040–CR

Decided: January 24, 2012

Before Justices Bridges, O'Neill, and Fillmore

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Opinion By Justice O'Neill

Christopher Ramiro Mireles was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment.   Sentence was imposed in open court on July 16, 2010.   No motion for new trial was filed;  therefore, appellant's notice of appeal was due by Monday, August 16, 2010.   See Tex.R.App. P. 4.1(a), 26.2(a)(1).   Appellant's December 19, 2011 notice of appeal is untimely as to the July 16, 2010 sentencing date, leaving us without jurisdiction over the appeal.   See Slaton v. State, 981 S.W.2d 208, 210 (Tex.Crim.App.1998) (per curiam).   We dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction.
