Fourth Court of Appeals San Antonio, Texas MEMORANDUM OPINION No. 04-18-00796-CR Victor N. CERVANTES, Appellant v. The STATE of Texas, Appellee From the 187th Judicial District Court, Bexar County, Texas Trial Court No. 2017CR11119 Honorable Joey Contreras, Judge Presiding PER CURIAM Sitting: Rebeca C. Martinez, Justice Patricia O. Alvarez, Justice Luz Elena D. Chapa, Justice Delivered and Filed: January 16, 2019 DISMISSED On December 7, 2018, this court issued an order stating this appeal would be dismissed pursuant to Rule 25.2(d) unless an amended trial court certification that shows appellant has the right of appeal was made part of the appellate record within thirty days of the order. See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(d), 37.1; see also Daniels v. State, 110 S.W.3d 174, 175-76 (Tex. App.—San Antonio 2003, order). Appellant’s counsel filed a response in which he states he is unable to find a justification to file an amended trial court certification in this case. In light of the record presented, Rule 25.2(d) requires this court to dismiss this appeal. TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(d). The record does 04-18-00796-CR not contain a certification that shows the defendant has the right of appeal; to the contrary, the trial court certification in the record states “this criminal case is a plea-bargain case, and the defendant has NO right of appeal.” The clerk’s record contains a written plea bargain, and the punishment assessed did not exceed the punishment recommended by the prosecutor and agreed to by the defendant; therefore, the clerk’s record supports the trial court’s certification that the defendant has no right of appeal. See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(a)(2). Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal. See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(d). PER CURIAM DO NOT PUBLISH -2-
