IN THE COURT OF APPEALS
TWELFTH COURT OF APPEALS DISTRICT
EMERSON SANATIO EVANS,
APPEAL FROM THE 145TH
JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT OF
THE STATE OF TEXAS,
NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TEXAS
MEMORANDUM OPINION (1)
This appeal is being dismissed for want of jurisdiction because Appellant has failed, after notice, to supplement the clerk's record with an appealable order. Rule 26.1 of the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure 26.2(a)(2) provides that where, as here, a motion for new trial is not filed, a notice of appeal must be filed within thirty days after the sentence is imposed or suspended in open court, or after the day trial court enters an appealable order. Tex. R. App. P. 26.2(a)(2). Appellant appeals from the trial court's order amending terms and conditions of his probation. In its order, the trial court required Appellant to serve three months in an Intermediate Sanction Facility.
The courts of appeals are required to determine their own jurisdiction in every case. Ex parte Lewis, 663 S.W.2d 153, 154 (Tex. App.- Amarillo 1983, no pet.). We have been unable to locate any authority permitting an appeal from an order amending the terms and conditions of probation, including one that requires a defendant to serve time in an Intermediate Sanction Facility. Thus, on March 18, 2002, pursuant to Tex. R. App. P. 37.2 and 44.3, Appellant was notified that the information received by the court did not contain an appealable order and given until April 1, 2002 to supplement the information showing the jurisdiction of the court. Appellant was further notified that his failure to timely supplement the information would result in the dismissal of this appeal.
As of April 18, 2002, Appellant has neither supplemented the record nor otherwise adequately responded to this court's notice. Because no order demonstrating that Appellant has properly invoked this court's jurisdiction is contained in the information provided to this court, we dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction. See Tex. R. App. P. 26.2, 42.3, and 44.3.
Delivered April 25, 2002.
Panel consisted of Davis, C.J., Worthen, J., and Griffith, J.
