Lionel Henderson, Jr. v. The State of Texas--Appeal from Criminal District Court of Jefferson County
Court of Appeals
Ninth District of Texas at Beaumont
NO. 09-04-183 CR
NO. 09-04-184 CR
LIONEL HENDERSON, JR., Appellant
THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee
On Appeal from the Criminal District Court
Jefferson County, Texas
Trial Cause Nos. 85485 and 86468
MEMORANDUM OPINION (1)
Lionel Henderson, Jr., was convicted and sentenced on two separate indictments for the state jail felony of theft and was sentenced in each case to 22 months of confinement in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Correctional Institutions Division. Henderson filed notices of appeal on April 15, 2004. In each case, 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 certifications have been provided to the Court of Appeals by the district clerk.
On April 22, 2004, we notified the parties that the appeals would be dismissed unless amended certifications were filed within thirty days of the date of the notices and made a part of the appellate records. See Tex. R. App. P. 37.1. The records have not been supplemented with amended certifications. Because a certification that shows the defendant has the right of appeal has not been made part of the record, the appeals must be dismissed. See Tex. R. App. P. 25.2(d).
Accordingly, we dismiss the appeals for want of jurisdiction.
