The trial court has certified that appellant has waived his right to appeal. See Tex. R. App. P. 25.2(d). Because appellant has waived his right to appeal, we dismiss.
Appellant pleaded guilty in 2002 to driving while intoxicated, and the trial court assessed two years= community supervision and a $500 fine. On April 20, 2005, after the state moved to revoke appellant=s community supervision, appellant signed a stipulation of evidence to the motion and agreed to three years= imprisonment and a $500 fine. Further, appellant signed admonishments that if the court accepted the punishment recommended by the prosecutor and agreed to by appellant, appellant could not appeal on any matter unless given permission by the trial court. Appellant filed a pro se notice of appeal. Appellant waived the right to appeal unless he obtained the trial court=s permission.
Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal.
