The State of Texas, Appellee FROM THE COUNTY COURT AT LAW NO. 1 OF WILLIAMSON COUNTY NO. 05-1575-1, HONORABLE SUZANNE BROOKS, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION Javier Jose Garza seeks to appeal from a judgment of conviction for driving while license suspended. Sentence was imposed on April 19, 2005. There was no motion for new trial. The deadline for perfecting appeal was therefore May 19, 2005. Tex. R. App. P. 26.2(a)(1). Notice of appeal was mailed on May 23 and filed on May 25, 2005. No extension of time for filing notice of appeal was requested. Tex. R. App. P. 26.3. Under the circumstances, we lack jurisdiction to dispose of the purported appeal in any manner other than by dismissing it 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 appeal is dismissed. __________________________________________ Bob Pemberton, Justice Before Justices B. A.
