Court of Appeals of Texas, Houston (14th Dist.).

Rodney Dean Sewell, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee

NO. 14–15–00215–CR

Decided: February 25, 2016

Panel consists of Justices Christopher, McCally, and Busby.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Appellant appeals his conviction for aggravated robbery.  Appellant's appointed counsel 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), by presenting a professional evaluation of the record and demonstrating why there are no arguable grounds to be advanced.  See High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807, 811–13 (Tex.Crim.App.1978).

A copy of counsel's brief and the record was delivered to appellant.  Appellant was advised of the right to file a pro se response.  See Stafford v. State, 813 S.W.2d 503, 512 (Tex.Crim.App.1991).  As of this date, more than 60 days have passed, and no pro se response has been filed.

We have reviewed the record and counsel's brief carefully and agree the appeals is wholly frivolous and without merit.  Further, we find no reversible error in the record.  We are not to address the merits of each claim raised in an Anders brief or a pro se response when we have determined there are no arguable grounds for review.  See Bledsoe v. State, 178 S.W.3d 824, 827–28 (Tex.Crim.App.2005).  Accordingly, the judgment of the trial court is affirmed.
