TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-05-00554-CR Kenneth King, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF TRAVIS COUNTY, 331ST JUDICIAL DISTRICT NO. 3013128, HONORABLE BOB PERKINS, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION In July 2002, appellant Kenneth King was placed on deferred adjudication community supervision after he pleaded guilty to attempted burglary of a habitation. See Tex. Pen. Code Ann. ยงยง 15.01, 30.02 (West 2003). Three years later, following a hearing on the State s motion, the trial court adjudicated appellant guilty and sentenced him to ten years imprisonment. Appellant 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). Appellant 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. The judgment of conviction is affirmed. __________________________________________ W.
