MEMORANDUM OPINION


A jury found appellant Thomas Leo Wilford guilty of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assessed his punishment at twenty years' imprisonment. Appellant's court-appointed counsel has filed a brief in which he states that the appeal in this cause is frivolous. See Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967); see also High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex.Crim.App. 1978); Currie v. State, 516 S.W.2d 684 (Tex.Crim.App. 1974); Gainous v. State, 436 S.W.2d 137 (Tex.Crim.App. 1969). The State, in its responsive brief, urges that appellant's counsel has not complied with Anders, High, and Currie. The State complains that counsel's brief does not "point out where pertinent testimony may be found in the record, refer to pages in the record where objections were made, the nature of the objection, the trial court's ruling, and discuss either why the trial court's ruling was correct or why the appellant was not harmed by the ruling of the court." High, 573 S.W.2d at 813. We agree with the State. The appeal is abated. Appellant's counsel, Todd Steven Dudley, is ordered to tender a new brief fully complying with Anders and High no later than December 31, 2007. No extension of time for filing will be granted.
