Appeal from the 227th Judicial District Court, Bexar County, Texas, Trial Court No. 2004-CR-0400, Honorable Philip A. Kazen, Jr., Judge Presiding. Dismissed.

Sitting: Alma L. LÓPEZ, Chief Justice, Catherine STONE, Justice, Sarah B. DUNCAN, Justice.


The trial court's certification in this appeal states that "this criminal case is a plea-bargain case, and the defendant has NO right of appeal." The clerk's record contains a written plea bargain, and the punishment assessed did not exceed the punishment recommended by the prosecutor and agreed to by the defendant; therefore, the trial court's certification accurately reflects that the underlying case is a plea-bargain case. See Tex.R.App.P. 25.2(a)(2). Rule 25.2(d) of the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure provides, "The appeal must be dismissed if a certification that shows the defendant has a right of appeal has not been made part of the record under these rules." Tex.R.App.P. 25.2(d). On July 25, 2005, we ordered that this appeal would be dismissed pursuant to rule 25.2(d) unless an amended trial court certification showing that the appellant has the right of appeal was made part of the appellate record by August 22, 2005. See Tex.R.App.P. 25.2(d); 37.1; see also Dears v. State, 154 S.W.3d 610 (Tex.Crim.App. 2005); Daniels v. State, 110 S.W.3d 174 (Tex.App.-San Antonio 2003, no pet.). No response was filed. In the absence of an amended trial court certification showing that the appellant has the right of appeal, rule 25.2(d) requires this court to dismiss this appeal. Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed.
