M E M O R A N D U M O P I N I O N


Appellant pled guilty on December 30, 2004, to the offense of driving while intoxicated. In accordance with the terms of a plea bargain agreement with the State, the trial court sentenced appellant to five years= incarceration in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Institutional Division, with the sentence suspended and appellant placed on 5 years= community supervision. The State subsequently moved to revoke community supervision. Appellant pled true to the State=s stipulation of evidence. In connection with this plea of true, appellant waived the right of appeal, conditioned on the trial court=s following the State=s recommendation that punishment be set at two years= incarceration in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Institutional Division. On June 24, 2005, the trial court sentenced appellant to two years= incarceration in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Institutional Division. Because appellant waived the right of appeal, we dismiss.

The trial court entered a certification of the defendant's right to appeal in which the court certified that the defendant has no right of appeal because the defendant waived the right of appeal. See Tex. R .App. P. 25.2(a)(2). The trial court's certification is included in the record on appeal. See Tex. R. App. P. 25.2(d).

Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal.
