Michael Parrett v. The State of Texas--Appeal from 390th District Court of Travis CountyAnnotate this Case
TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN
Michael Parrett, Appellant
The State of Texas, Appellee
FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF TRAVIS COUNTY, 390TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
NO. 1010132, HONORABLE JULIE H. KOCUREK, JUDGE PRESIDING
Appellant Michael Parrett pleaded guilty to intentionally or knowingly causing bodily
injury to a child and was placed on deferred adjudication supervision. See Tex. Penal Code Ann.
§ 22.04 (West Supp. 2006). He later pleaded true to the allegations contained in the State’s motion
to adjudicate. The district court adjudged appellant guilty and imposed a four-year prison sentence.
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.
