THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee On Appeal from the 291st Judicial District Court Dallas County, Texas Trial Court Cause Nos. F16-40491-U, F16-40492-U, F16-40498-U, & F17-53998-U MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Bridges, Francis, and Lang-Miers Opinion by Justice Francis In June 2016, Tavis Davon Simon was placed on deferred adjudication community supervision for burglary of a habitation, fraudulent use or possession of identifying information, and misdemeanor terroristic threat. While on deferred probation, he was charged with another burglary of a habitation and the State filed a motion to adjudicate guilt in the three previous cases. At a September 2017 hearing at which there was no plea agreement, appellant pleaded guilty to the new burglary charge and true to the allegations in the State’s motion to adjudicate. The trial court accepted appellant’s pleas of guilty and true, found he violated the conditions of his probation, found him guilty on all charges, and assessed punishment at six months in county jail on the misdemeanor case and ten years in prison on each of the felony cases. The sentences run concurrently. In a single issue on appeal, appellant requests this Court to correct the name of the prosecuting attorney in the judgment. The record shows the attorney for the State was NadinSarah Salkic, but the judgments incorrectly identify her as “Nadine Sarah Sallic.” The State has joined appellant’s request. We have authority to correct a judgment below to make the record “speak the truth” when we have the necessary data and information to do so. Asberry v. State, 813 S.W.2d 526, 529 (Tex. App.—Dallas 1991, pet. ref’d). Accordingly, we modify the judgments to reflect the attorney for the State in these cases was Nadin-Sarah Salkic. We affirm the trial court’s judgments as modified. /Molly Francis/ MOLLY FRANCIS JUSTICE Do Not Publish TEX. R. APP.
