TROY DEMOND JENNINGS, Appellant v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee

No. 10-17-00306-CR

Decided: October 04, 2017

Before Chief Justice Gray, Justice Davis, and Justice Scoggins

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Troy Demond Jennings appeals from the judgment of conviction and sentence rendered against him on August 25, 2017. Because the trial court's certification of his right of appeal, which Jennings and his counsel signed, indicates that the underlying case was a plea-bargain case and that Jennings has no right of appeal and also that Jennings has waived his right of appeal, this appeal must be dismissed. See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(d) (“The appeal must be dismissed if a certification that shows the defendant has the right of appeal has not been made part of the record under these rules.”); Chavez v. State, 183 S.W.3d 675, 680 (Tex. Crim. App. 2006) (plea bargain); Monreal v. State, 99 S.W.3d 615, 622 (Tex. Crim. App. 2003) (waiver of appeal).

Notwithstanding that we are dismissing this appeal, Jennings may file a motion for rehearing with this Court within 15 days after this opinion and judgment are rendered if he believes this opinion and judgment are erroneously based on inaccurate information or documents. See TEX. R. APP. P. 49.1. Moreover, if Jennings desires to have the opinion and judgment of this Court reviewed by filing a petition for discretionary review, that petition must be filed with the Court of Criminal Appeals within 30 days after either the day this Court's judgment is rendered or the day the last timely motion for rehearing is overruled by this Court. See TEX. R. APP. P. 68.2(a).

For the reasons stated, this appeal is dismissed.
