The State of Texas, Appellee FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF BURNET COUNTY, 33RD JUDICIAL DISTRICT NO. 31906, HONORABLE DANIEL H. MILLS, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION Karl Wayne Thomas seeks to appeal from a judgment of conviction for aggravated assault. Sentence was imposed on June 27, 2006. There was a timely motion for new trial. The deadline for perfecting appeal was therefore September 25, 2006. Tex. R. App. P. 26.2(a)(2). Notice of appeal was filed on September 27. No extension of time for filing notice of appeal was requested. Tex. R. App. P. 26.3. There is no indication that notice of appeal was properly mailed to the district clerk within the time prescribed by rule 26.2(a). Tex. R. App. P. 9.2(b). 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.
