Houston, Texas – Criminal Defense lawyer represented defendant with a forgery of a governmental financial instrument charge.
On August 25, 2021, the trial court sentenced appellant, Jennifer Ami Reno,
to 2 years in the Institutional Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice
for the third-degree felony offense of forgery of a governmental financial instrument.
On August 30, 2021, appellant filed a notice of appeal. On September 24, 2021,
appellant timely filed a motion for new trial. The clerk’s record contains an order
showing that the trial court granted appellant’s motion for new trial. The granting
of a motion for new trial restores the case to its position before the former trial. See
TEX. R. APP P. 21.9(b). The appeal was rendered moot by the order granting a new
trial. See id.
Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal as moot and for lack of jurisdiction.
