JOANNA SUE COULTER, APPELLANT v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, APPELLEE

No. 07-17-00119-CR

Decided: June 28, 2017

Before QUINN, C.J., and CAMPBELL and PIRTLE, JJ.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Pursuant to a plea bargain agreement, Appellant, JoAnna Sue Coulter, was convicted of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle,1 sentenced to six months in a state jail facility, and assessed a $500 fine. The trial court's certification of Appellant's right of appeal reflects that Appellant's case is a plea-bargained case with no right of appeal and that Appellant waived the right of appeal. The certification notwithstanding, Appellant filed a notice of appeal through her court-appointed trial counsel, challenging her conviction.

By letter dated June 7, 2017, this court notified Appellant of the consequences of her certification and invited her to file an amended certification showing a right of appeal or demonstrate other grounds for continuing the appeal on or before June 19. Appellant has not filed an amended certification reflecting a right of appeal or a response establishing good cause for continuing this appeal. Consequently, we have no alternative but to dismiss the appeal based on the certification signed by the trial court. See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(d).

It is so ordered.
