V.


THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee


On Appeal from the 248th District Court

Harris County, Texas

Trial Court Cause No. 924781


MEMORANDUM OPINION

A jury convicted appellant, Rachel Herrera Maldonado, of murder and assessed punishment at confinement for 50 years. We affirm.

Appellant s court-appointed counsel filed a brief concluding that the appeal is without merit. The brief meets the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 744, 87 S. Ct. 1396, 1400 (1967), by presenting a professional evaluation of the record and demonstrating why there are no arguable grounds of error to be advanced. See High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807, 811 (Tex. Crim. App. 1978); Moore v. State, 845 S.W.2d 352, 353 (Tex. App. Houston [1st Dist.] 1992, pet. ref d).

The brief states that a copy was delivered to appellant, whom counsel advised by letter of her right to examine the appellate record and file a pro se brief. See Stafford v. State, 813 S.W.2d 503, 510 (Tex. Crim. App. 1991). More than 30 days have passed, and appellant has not filed a pro se brief. We have carefully reviewed the record and counsel s brief. We find no reversible error in the record, and agree that the appeal is wholly frivolous.

We affirm the judgment of the trial court. //
