Case Number: 09-17-00469-CR
Judge: STEVE McKEITHEN
Court: Court of Appeals
Ninth District of Texas at Beaumont
Plaintiff's Attorney: Wayln G. Thompson
Defendant's Attorney: Thomas J. Burbank
Description: Pursuant to a plea bargain agreement, appellant Vera Leoma Kibbe pleaded
guilty to felony driving while intoxicated. The trial court found Kibbe guilty and
assessed punishment at ten years of confinement, then suspended imposition of
sentence, placed Kibbe on community supervision for five years, and assessed a
$1000 fine. Subsequently, the State filed a motion to revoke Kibbe’s community
supervision. Kibbe pleaded “true” to two violations of the terms of the community
supervision order. The trial court found that Kibbe violated the terms of the
community supervision order, revoked Kibbe’s community supervision, and
imposed a sentence of ten years of confinement.1
Kibbe’s appellate counsel filed a brief that presents counsel’s professional
evaluation of the record and concludes the appeal is frivolous. See Anders v.
California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967); High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex. Crim. App.
1978). On February 27, 2018, we granted an extension of time for Kibbe to file a
pro se brief. We received no response from Kibbe.
Outcome: We reviewed the appellate record, and we agree with counsel’s conclusion
that no arguable issues support an appeal. Therefore, we find it unnecessary to order appointment of new counsel to re-brief the appeal.
We affirm the trial court’s judgment.2
