TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-05-00736-CR Freddie Hawkins, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee FROM THE COUNTY COURT AT LAW NO. 3 OF TRAVIS COUNTY NO. 709236, HONORABLE WILLIAM E. BENDER, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION A jury found appellant Freddie Hawkins guilty of assault with bodily injury. See Tex. Pen. Code Ann. ยง 22.01 (West Supp. 2005). The court assessed punishment at one year in jail and a $2000 fine. 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. __________________________________________ David Puryear, Justice Before Justices Puryear, Pemberton and Waldrop Affirmed Filed: August 11, 2006 Do Not Publish 2
