MEMORANDUM OPINION

 

On May 28, 1996, we received copies of Dederick Stewart's notices of appeal and the trial court clerk's information forms regarding each appeal. // Tex. R. App. P. 40(b)(1). According to these sources and motions to dismiss he filed, Stewart was convicted of delivery of a controlled substance, cocaine, and placed on four years probation on April 8, 1996, for each conviction. On May 23, his probation was revoked and he was sentenced to two years' confinement in a state jail on each conviction, to be served consecutively. On June 17, 1996, he filed motions to withdraw his notices of appeal and asks that we dismiss his appeals.

In the relevant portion, Rule 59 of the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure states:

(b) Criminal Cases. The appeal may be dismissed if the appellant withdraws his notice of appeal at any time prior to the decision of the appellate court. The withdrawal shall be in writing signed by the appellant and his counsel and filed in duplicate with the clerk of the court of appeals in which the appeal is pending . . . . Notice of the dismissal shall be sent to the clerk of the trial court in which notice of appeal was filed.

Id. 59(b).

Stewart and his attorney have both signed the motions, as required by the rule. Id. We have not issued a decision. Thus, the motions are granted and his notices of appeal are withdrawn.

Stewart's appeals are dismissed. Id.
