Dudley Hickman v. The State of Texas--Appeal from 114th District Court of Smith CountyAnnotate this Case
IN THE COURT OF APPEALS
TWELFTH COURT OF APPEALS DISTRICT
APPEAL FROM THE 114TH
JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT OF
THE STATE OF TEXAS,
SMITH COUNTY, TEXAS
Dudley Hickman appeals his conviction for driving while intoxicated. Appellant pleaded guilty and received probation. Later after the State moved to revoke probation, he entered a plea of true to several of the allegations contained in the motion to revoke. The trial court revoked Appellant's probation and assessed punishment at ten years of imprisonment and a $5,000.00 fine.
Appellant's court-appointed attorney filed a brief in which he concludes the appeal is wholly frivolous and without merit. The brief meets the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S. Ct. 1396, 18 L. Ed. 2d 493 (1967). The brief presents a professional evaluation of the record showing why, in effect, there are no arguable grounds to advance. See High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex. Crim. App. [Panel Op.] 1978). Counsel delivered a copy of the brief to Appellant. We advised Appellant he has a right to file a pro se response. Appellant, however, did not file a pro se response.
We have reviewed the record and counsel's brief. We agree the appeal is frivolous and without merit. We find nothing in the record that might arguably support the appeal.
We affirm the trial court's judgment and grant counsel's motion to withdraw.
Opinion delivered June 28, 2002.
Panel consisted of Worthen, J., and Griffith, J.
