The State of Texas, Appellee FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF WILLIAMSON COUNTY, 277TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT NO. 03-727-K277, HONORABLE KEN ANDERSON, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION Raul Ramirez seeks to appeal from a judgment of conviction for possession of a controlled substance.

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).
