Peyton Ashley Simpson v. The State of Texas


ORDER

Trial court: County Court of Chambers County

Appellant, Peyton Ashley Simpson, contends that, following its denial of her motion to suppress, the trial court should have filed findings of fact and conclusions of law. The State concedes this point. See State v. Cullen, 195 S.W.3d 696, 699 (Tex. Crim. App. 2006) (holding that, "upon the request of the losing party on a motion to suppress evidence, the trial court . . . must make findings of fact and conclusions of law adequate to provide an appellate court with a basis upon which to review the trial court's application of the law to the facts").

The appeal is abated and remanded for the trial court to make written findings of fact and conclusions of law regarding its ruling on appellant's motion to suppress. The trial court shall make the appropriate findings and conclusions and shall cause them to be filed with the trial court clerk within 20 days of the date of this order.

The trial court clerk is ordered to file a supplemental clerk's record containing the trial court's findings of fact and conclusions of law with this Court within 30 days of the date of this order.

This appeal is abated, treated as a closed case, and removed from this Court's active docket. The appeal will be reinstated on this Court's active docket without further order of the Court when the supplemental clerk's record is filed in this Court.

It is so ORDERED. Judge's signature: Laura Carter Higley
