Court of Appeals
First District of Texas
RACHEL HERRERA MALDONADO, Appellant
THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee
On Appeal from the 248th District Court
Harris County, Texas
Trial Court Cause No. 924781
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. //
Panel consists of Chief Justice Radack, and Justices Keyes and Bland.
