Rose Mary Moss v. The State of Texas--Appeal from Criminal District Court of Jefferson County
Court of Appeals
Ninth District of Texas at Beaumont
NO. 09-06-438 CR
ROSE MARY MOSS, Appellant
THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee
On Appeal from the Criminal District Court
Jefferson County, Texas
Trial Cause No. 93011
A jury found appellant Rose Mary Moss guilty of injury to a child and assessed punishment at ten years of imprisonment.
Moss's appellate counsel filed a brief that presents counsel's professional evaluation of the record and concludes the appeal is frivolous. See Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S.Ct. 1396, 18 L.Ed.2d 493 (1967); High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex. Crim. App. 1978). On July 26, 2007, we granted an extension of time for appellant to file a pro se brief. We received no response from appellant.
We reviewed the appellate record, and we agree with counsel's conclusion that no arguable issues support an appeal. Therefore, we find it unnecessary to order appointment of new counsel to re-brief the appeal. Compare Stafford v. State, 813 S.W.2d 503, 511 (Tex. Crim. App. 1991). We affirm the trial court's judgment. (1)
