Court of Appeals

RENEA ROACHE, Appellant
V.
THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee
On Appeal from the 252nd District Court
Jefferson County, Texas
Trial Cause No. 89762
MEMORANDUM OPINION (1)

Renea Roache was convicted and sentenced on an indictment for delivery of a simulated controlled substance. Roache filed a notice of appeal on December 9, 2003. The trial court entered a certification of the defendant's right to appeal in which the court certified that this is a plea-bargain case and the defendant has no right of appeal. See Tex. R. App. P. 25.2(a)(2). The trial court's certification has been provided to the Court of Appeals by the district clerk.

On December 11, 2003, we notified the parties that the appeal would be dismissed unless an amended certification was filed within thirty days of the date of the notice and made a part of the appellate record. See Tex. R. App. P. 37.1. The record has not been supplemented with an amended certification. Because a certification that shows the defendant has the right of appeal has not been made part of the record, the appeal must be dismissed. See Tex. R. App. P. 25.2(d).

Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction.

APPEAL DISMISSED.
