Download as PDF TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-04-00669-CR Michael Lindaas aka Michael Landaas aka Michael Greer, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF WILLIAMSON COUNTY, 277TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT NO. 03-811-K277, HONORABLE KEN ANDERSON, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION A jury found appellant Michael Lindaas guilty of possessing more than four grams of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. See Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. § 481.112(a), (d) (West 2003). The jury assessed punishment, enhanced by two previous felony convictions, at life imprisonment. Appellant’s court-appointed attorney filed a brief concluding that the appeal is frivolous and without merit. The brief meets the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), by presenting a professional evaluation of the record demonstrating why there are no arguable grounds to be advanced. See also Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75 (1988); High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex. Crim. App. 1978); Currie v. State, 516 S.W.2d 684 (Tex. Crim. App. 1974); Jackson v. State, 485 S.W.2d 553 (Tex. Crim. App. 1972); Gainous v. State, 436 S.W.2d 137 (Tex. Crim. App. 1969). Appellant received a copy of counsel’s brief and was advised of his right to examine the appellate record and to file a pro se brief. No pro se brief has been filed. We have reviewed the record and counsel’s brief and agree that the appeal is frivolous and without merit. We find nothing in the record that might arguably support the appeal. The judgment of conviction is affirmed. ___________________________________________ W.
