From the 186th Judicial District Court, Bexar County, Texas
Trial Court No. 2006CR5239
Honorable Jefferson Moore, Judge Presiding
Appellant's court-appointed attorney has filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 368 U.S. 738 (1967), asserting there are no meritorious issues to raise on appeal, and has informed the appellant of the right to file his own pro se brief. Nichols v. State, 954 S.W.2d 83, 85 (Tex. App.—San Antonio 1997, no pet.); Bruns v. State, 924 S.W.2d 176, 177 n.1 (Tex. App.—San Antonio 1996, no pet.). The State has filed a letter waiving its right to file an appellee's brief unless appellant files a pro se brief. Appellant has filed a written request for a copy of the appellate record to use in preparing a pro se brief. See Kelly v. State, 436 S.W.3d 313 (Tex. Crim. App. 2014).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that appellant shall be promptly provided with a copy of the appellate record. Appellant's pro se brief is due within thirty (30) days from the date of this order. See Bruns, 924 S.W.2d at 177 n.1. If the appellant files a pro se brief, the State may file a responsive brief no later than thirty (30) days after the date the appellant's pro se brief is filed in this court.
