On Appeal from the 194th Judicial District Court Dallas County, Texas
Trial Court Cause No. F13-56357-M
Before Justices Francis, Lang-Miers, and Whitehill
Opinion by Justice Francis
A jury convicted Jonathan Demond Crews of assault involving family violence, enhanced by a prior conviction for assault involving family violence. During the punishment phase, the jury found one enhancement paragraph alleging a prior conviction for aggravated assault true and assessed punishment at fifteen years in prison and a $5,000 fine. On appeal, appellant's attorney filed a brief in which he concludes the appeal is wholly frivolous and without merit. The brief meets the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967). The brief presents a professional evaluation of the record showing why, in effect, there are no arguable grounds to advance. See High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807, 811-12 (Tex. Crim. App. [Panel Op.] 1978). Counsel delivered a copy of the brief to appellant. We advised appellant of his right to file a pro se response, but he did not file a pro se response. See Kelly v. State, 436 S.W.3d 313, 319-21 (Tex. Crim. App. 2014) (identifying duties of appellate courts and counsel in Anders cases).
We have reviewed the record and counsel's brief. See Bledsoe v. State, 178 S.W.3d 824, 826-27 (Tex. Crim. App. 2005) (explaining appellate court's duty in Anders cases). We agree the appeal is frivolous and without merit. We find nothing in the record that might arguably support the appeal.
We affirm the trial court's judgment. Do Not Publish
