Fourth Court of Appeals San Antonio, Texas MEMORANDUM OPINION No. 04-18-00922-CR Michele Valdez VALDEZ, Appellant v. The STATE of Texas, Appellee From the 379th Judicial District Court, Bexar County, Texas Trial Court No. 2017CR0909 Honorable Ron Rangel, Judge Presiding PER CURIAM Sitting: Patricia O. Alvarez, Justice Luz Elena D. Chapa, Justice Irene Rios, Justice Delivered and Filed: January 16, 2019 DISMISSED The trial court’s certification in this appeal states that “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; Rule 25.2(a)(2) applies. See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(a)(2). This court must dismiss this appeal “if a certification that shows the defendant has the right of appeal has not been made part of the record under these rules.” Id. R. 25.2(d); see Chavez v. State, 183 S.W.3d 675, 680 (Tex. Crim. App. 2006). 04-18-00922-CR On December 5, 2018, we notified Appellant that this appeal would be dismissed under Rule 25.2(d) unless an amended trial court certification showing that Appellant has the right of appeal was made part of the appellate record by January 4, 2019. See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.2(d), 37.1; see also Dears v. State, 154 S.W.3d 610, 613 (Tex. Crim. App. 2005); Daniels v. State, 110 S.W.3d 174, 176 (Tex. App.—San Antonio 2003, no pet.). To date, no response has been filed. Absent an amended trial court certification showing that Appellant has the right of appeal, Rule 25.2(d) requires this court to dismiss this appeal. See Dears, 154 S.W.3d at 613; Daniels, 110 S.W.3d at 176. Accordingly, this appeal is dismissed. PER CURIAM DO NOT PUBLISH -2-
