MEMORANDUM OPINION On June 16, 2008, the trial court sentenced Lester Ray Jenkins on a conviction for arson. Jenkins filed a notice of appeal on July 11, 2008. The trial court entered a certification of the defendant’s right to appeal in which the court certified that this is a pleabargain case and the defendant has no right of appeal. S ee T EX. R . A PP. P . 2 5.2(a)(2). The district clerk has provided the trial court’s certification to the Court of Appeals.
On July 16, 2008, we notified the parties that we would dismiss the appeal unless an amended certification was filed within fifteen days of the date of the notice and made a part of the appellate record. S ee T EX. R . A PP. P . 25.2(f). The record has not been supplemented with an amended certification. Because the record does not contain a certification that shows the defendant has the right of appeal, we must dismiss the appeal. S ee T EX. R . A PP. P . 2 5.2(d). Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction.
