On appeal from the 214th District Court

of Nueces County, Texas.

MEMORANDUM OPINION


Before Justices Rodriguez, Castillo, and Garza

Opinion Per Curiam


Appellant, GUADALUPE SALAZAR, JR., attempts to appeal a conviction for burglary of a habitation with intent to commit theft. The trial court has certified that this is a plea-bargain case, and the defendant has NO right of appeal. See Tex. R. App. P. 25.2(a)(2).

On April 13, 2004, this Court notified appellant s counsel of the trial court s certification and ordered counsel to: (1) review the record; (2) determine whether appellant has a right to appeal; and (3) forward to this Court, by letter, counsel s findings as to whether appellant has a right to appeal, or, alternatively, advise this Court as to the existence of any amended certification.

On May 13, 2004, counsel filed a letter brief with this Court. Counsel s response fails to establish either that the certification currently on file with this Court is incorrect or that appellant otherwise has a right to appeal.

The Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure provide that an appeal must be dismissed if the trial court s certification does not show that the defendant has the right of appeal. Tex. R. App. P. 25.2(d); see Tex. R. App. P. 37.1, 44.3, 44.4. Accordingly, this appeal is dismissed. Any pending motions are denied as moot.
