Bradric Givante Dwarren Fransaw, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee

NO. 03–12–00349–CR

Decided: May 17, 2013

Before Justices Puryear, Pemberton, and Rose

M E M O R A N D U M O P I N I O N

A jury convicted Bradric Givante Dwarren Fransaw of four counts of aggravated sexual assault and assessed his punishment at ninety-nine years' imprisonment on each count.   See Tex. Penal Code § 22.021(a)(1)(A)(i), (ii), (2)(A)(iv).

Fransaw's court-appointed attorney has filed a motion to withdraw supported by a brief concluding that this appeal is frivolous and without merit.   The brief meets the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 744 (1967), by presenting a professional evaluation of the record demonstrating why there are no arguable grounds to be advanced.   See also Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75 (1988);  High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex.Crim.App.1978);  Currie v. State, 516 S.W.2d 684 (Tex.Crim.App.1974);  Jackson v. State, 485 S.W.2d 553 (Tex.Crim.App.1972);  Gainous v. State, 436 S.W.2d 137 (Tex.Crim.App.1969).   Counsel sent a copy of the brief to Fransaw and advised him of his right to examine the appellate record and to file a pro se brief.   See Anders, 386 U.S. at 744.   Fransaw did not file a pro se brief and did not request an extension of time.

We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error.   See Garner v. State, 300 S.W.3d 763, 766 (Tex.Crim.App.2009);  Bledsoe v. State, 178 S.W.3d 824, 826–27 (Tex.Crim.App.2005).   We agree with counsel that the appeal is frivolous, and his motion to withdraw is granted.   The judgment of conviction is affirmed.

Jeff Rose, Justice
