DWI Case decided by 5th Court of Appeals on July 27, 2017

The 5th Court of Appeals decided PILAR FRANCISCO GONZALES, Appellant v. THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee, on July 27, 2017.

The Court issued a memorandum opinion affirming Appellant’s conviction for Driving While Intoxicated.

The case was on appeal from County Court at Law No. 3 in Collin County, Texas, as Trial Court Cause No. 003-87839-2015. From the appellate court:

After a jury found appellant guilty of driving while intoxicated, the trial court assessed punishment at 120 days in county jail, probated for twelve months, and a $500 fine. Based on the trial court’s findings following a hearing about why the reporter’s record had not been filed, we concluded appellant had abandoned his appeal. We ordered the appeal submitted without the reporter’s record and briefs. See TEX. R. APP. P. 37.3(c), 38.8(b)(4). Absent briefs, there are no issues before us. Finding no fundamental error, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
