DISMISS; and Opinion Filed December 7, 2018. In The Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas No. 05-18-01354-CR No. 05-18-01355-CR LATRICIA FURRER, Appellant V. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee On Appeal from the 422nd Judicial District Court Kaufman County, Texas Trial Court Cause Nos. 14-10102-422-F & 16-30574-422-F MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Lang-Miers, Fillmore, and Myers Opinion by Justice Fillmore On November 7, 2018, Latricia Furrer filed her notice of appeals in the above cases. The trial court clerk informed the Court that although motions to revoke Furrer’s community supervision had been filed in these cases, the hearing on the motions is scheduled for January 2019. An appellate court has jurisdiction to determine an appeal only if the appeal is authorized by law. Abbott v. State, 271 S.W.3d 694, 696–97 (Tex. Crim. App. 2008). Appellate courts may consider criminal appeals only after conviction or the entry of a narrow set of appealable interlocutory orders. TEX. R. APP. P. 26.2(a)(1); Wright v. State, 969 S.W.2d 588, 589 (Tex. App.— Dallas 1998, no pet.). Here, although motions to revoke Furrer’s probation have been filed, the trial court has not yet ruled on the motions. Thus, there are no final judgments or otherwise appealable orders in these cases. Under these circumstances, we conclude we lack jurisdiction. We dismiss these appeals for want of jurisdiction. /Robert M. Fillmore/ ROBERT M. FILLMORE JUSTICE Do Not Publish TEX. R. APP.
