The sentences were imposed on November 9, 2004. There was a timely motion for new trial. The deadline for perfecting appeal was therefore February 7, 2005. Tex. R. App. P. 26.2(a)(2). The notices of appeal were filed on May 24, 2005. Under the circumstances, we lack jurisdiction to dispose of the purported appeals in any manner other than by dismissing them for want of jurisdiction. See Slaton v. State, 981 S.W.2d 208 (Tex. Crim. App. 1998); Olivo v. State, 918 S.W.2d 519, 522-23 (Tex. Crim. App. 1996). The appeals are dismissed. __________________________________________ Bob Pemberton, Justice Before Chief Justice Law, Justices B. A.
