On appeal from the 2nd 25th District Court
of Lavaca County, Texas.
Before Justices Rodriguez, Garza, and Perkes
Memorandum Opinion Per Curiam
Appellant, Jeremiah Brigham Young, attempts to appeal his conviction for sexual assault. The trial court has certified that this "is a plea-bargain case, and the defendant has NO right of appeal," and "the defendant has waived the right of appeal." See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(a)(2).
On January 14, 2014, this Court notified appellant's counsel of the trial court's certification and ordered counsel to: (1) review the record; (2) determine whether appellant has a right to appeal; and (3) forward to this Court, by letter, counsel's findings as to whether appellant has a right to appeal, or, alternatively, advise this Court as to the existence of any amended certification.
On February 14, 2014, counsel filed a letter brief with this Court. Counsel's response does not establish that the certification currently on file with this Court is incorrect or that appellant otherwise has a right to appeal.
The Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure provide that an appeal must be dismissed if the trial court's certification does not show that the defendant has the right of appeal. TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(d); see TEX. R. APP. P. 37.1, 44.3, 44.4. Accordingly, this appeal is DISMISSED.
PER CURIAM Do not publish.
