Court of Appeals
Ninth District of Texas at Beaumont
GARY DWIGHT GORDON JR., Appellant
THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee
On Appeal from the Criminal District Court
Jefferson County, Texas
Trial Cause No. 08-02779
The trial court sentenced Gary Dwight Gordon Jr. on a conviction for
aggravated robbery. Gordon filed a notice of appeal. 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 district clerk has provided the trial court’s certification to the Court
of Appeals. The clerk of this Court notified the parties that the Court would
dismiss the appeal unless the appellant established grounds for continuing the
appeal. The appellant filed a response but failed to establish that the trial court’s
certification should be amended. Because the record does not contain a
certification that shows the defendant has the right of appeal, we dismiss the
appeal. See Tex. R. App. P. 25.2(d).
