No. 02-06-439-CVCourt of Appeals of Texas, Second District, Fort Worth.
Delivered: February 8, 2007.
Appeal from Criminal District Court No. 4 of Tarrant County.
PANEL D: DAUPHINOT, HOLMAN, and GARDNER, JJ.
Appellant Richard Tharpe attempts to appeal from the trial court’s judgment signed August 8, 2006. Appellant did not file a postjudgment motion to extend the appellate deadline; his notice of appeal was therefore due September 7, 2006. But he did not file a notice of appeal until November 20, 2006.
Because the notice of appeal was untimely, we sent a letter to Appellant requesting a response showing grounds for continuing the appeal, as it appeared we lacked jurisdiction. Appellant’s response requesting a continuance did not show grounds for continuing the appeal. Accordingly, we dismiss this case for want of jurisdiction.
