Austin, Texas – Criminal_Defense lawyer represented Appellant with a driving while license invalid charge.
At some point in January 2022, Waggoner, proceeding pro se, filed in this Court
what he captioned a “notice of appeal” from the “appealable order by [the] trial court signed on
December 9, 2021,” which was the date his conviction was affirmed, and a motion for extension
of time to file his notice of appeal.
1 Waggoner’s notice appears to be, in substance, a second
attempt to appeal his conviction. However, “only one appeal can be made from a verdict and
judgment of conviction in any case,” Hines v. State, 70 S.W. 955, 957 (Tex. Crim. App. 1902);
McDonald v. State, 401 S.W.3d 360, 361–63 (Tex. App.—Amarillo 2013, pet. ref’d), and this
Court lacks jurisdiction to review the opinion and judgment of the First District Court of
Appeals. Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal for want of jurisdiction.2
Outcome: We dismiss Waggoner’s motion for extension of time as moot.
