TIMOTHY RAY TRAHAN JR., Appellant v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee

NO. 09-16-00391-CR

Decided: May 31, 2017

Before McKeithen, C.J., Kreger and Johnson, JJ.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Pursuant to a plea bargain agreement, appellant Timothy Ray Trahan Jr. pleaded guilty to evading arrest or detention with a vehicle. The trial court found Trahan guilty and assessed punishment at ten years of confinement, then suspended imposition of sentence, placed Trahan on community supervision for ten years, and assessed a fine of $7000. The State subsequently filed a motion to revoke Trahan's community supervision. Trahan pleaded “not true” to six violations of the terms of the community supervision order. The State then abandoned the allegation in paragraph one. After conducting an evidentiary hearing, the trial court found that Trahan violated the terms of the community supervision order, revoked Trahan's community supervision, and imposed a sentence of five years of confinement.

Trahan's appellate counsel filed a brief that presents counsel's professional evaluation of the record and concludes the appeal is frivolous. See Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967); High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex. Crim. App. 1978). On January 27, 2017, we granted an extension of time for appellant to file a pro se brief. We received no response from the appellant.

We have reviewed the appellate record, and we agree with counsel's conclusion that no arguable issues support an appeal. Therefore, we find it unnecessary to order appointment of new counsel to re-brief the appeal. Cf. Stafford v. State, 813 S.W.2d 503, 511 (Tex. Crim. App. 1991). We affirm the trial court's judgment.1

AFFIRMED.
