Josh McClendon III v. The State of Texas--Appeal from 77th District Court of Limestone CountyAnnotate this Case
TENTH COURT OF APPEALS
JOSH McCLENDON III,
THE STATE OF TEXAS,
From the 77th District Court
Limestone County, Texas
Trial Court # 9054-A
The court revoked Josh McClendon, III s community supervision for burglary of a habitation on March 21, 2002 and imposed the original sentence of ten years imprisonment. McClendon filed a pro se notice of appeal on September 11.
Because McClendon did not file a motion for new trial, his notice of appeal was due on Monday, April 22, 2002. See Tex. R. App. P. 26.2(a)(1). If an appeal is not timely perfected, a court of appeals does not obtain jurisdiction to address the merits of the appeal. Slaton v. State, 981 S.W.2d 208, 210 (Tex. Crim. App. 1998); Fowler v. State, 16 S.W.3d 426, 428 (Tex. App. Waco 2000, pet. ref d). McClendon did not timely perfect his appeal. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction.
Before Chief Justice Davis,
Justice Vance, and
Appeal dismissed for want of jurisdiction
