Appeal Dismissed and Memorandum Opinion filed November 2, 2017. In The Fourteenth Court of Appeals NO. 14-17-00390-CR AARON ONYEDIKACHI EMETON, Appellant V. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee On Appeal from the County Criminal Court at Law No. 11 Harris County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 2112756 MEMORANDUM OPINION Appellant was convicted of carrying a handgun in a motor vehicle. Subsequently, the trial court granted appellant’s motion for new trial. Generally, we only have jurisdiction to consider an appeal by a criminal defendant when there has been a final judgment of conviction. See Workman v. State, 170 Tex. Crim. App. 621, 343 S.W.2d 446, 447 (1961); McKown v. State, 915 S.W.2d 160, 161 (Tex. App. – Fort Worth 1996, no pet.). Because appellant has been granted a new trial, there is no final conviction to appeal. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal. PER CURIAM Panel consists of Justices Jamison, Busby, and Donovan.
