THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee _______________________________________________________ ______________ On Appeal from the Criminal District Court Jefferson County, Texas Trial Cause No. 08-02779 ________________________________________________________ _____________ MEMORANDUM OPINION 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 1 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). APPEAL DISMISSED. ________________________________ DAVID GAULTNEY Justice Opinion Delivered March 6, 2013 Do Not Publish Before McKeithen, C.J., Gaultney and Horton, JJ. 2
