TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-05-00204-CR Cedric Jerome Dixon, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF BELL COUNTY, 264TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT NO. 56688, HONORABLE JOE CARROLL, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION Appellant Cedric Jerome Dixon was convicted of aggravated robbery following his plea of guilty. See Tex. Pen. Code Ann. ยง 29.03 (West 2003). The court sentenced him to twentyfive years in prison. Dixon s court-appointed attorney filed a brief concluding that the appeal is frivolous and without merit. The brief meets the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), by presenting a professional evaluation of the record demonstrating why there are no arguable grounds to be advanced. See also Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75 (1988); High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex. Crim. App. 1978); Currie v. State, 516 S.W.2d 684 (Tex. Crim. App. 1974); Jackson v. State, 485 S.W.2d 553 (Tex. Crim. App. 1972); Gainous v. State, 436 S.W.2d 137 (Tex. Crim. App. 1969). Dixon received a copy of counsel s brief and was advised of his right to examine the appellate record and to file a pro se brief. No pro se brief has been filed. We have reviewed the record and counsel s brief and agree that the appeal is frivolous and without merit. We find nothing in the record that might arguably support the appeal. Counsel s motion to withdraw is granted. The judgment of conviction is affirmed. ___________________________________________ Bea Ann Smith, Justice Before Justices B. A.
