SANDEE BRYAN MARION, Chief Justice.
Appellant's brief was originally due on February 17, 2017. Appellant is represented on appeal by appointed counsel, Mr. Michael Raign. Because Mr. Raign did not timely file appellant's brief, we issued an order on May 17, 2017, abating the cause to the trial court and ordering the trial court to conduct a hearing no later than June 5, 2017 to answer the following questions:
On July 10, 2017, the trial court conducted a hearing at which the court found appellant wished to prosecute his appeal and appellant was indigent. After accepting Mr. Raign's reasons for failing to timely file the brief, the trial court "set a firm date . . . of July 20th to have the brief turned in. . . ." Mr. Raign agreed that would provide him with sufficient time in which to complete and file the brief.
It is therefore ORDERED that this appeal is reinstated on the docket of this court. Mr. Raign is hereby ORDERED to file appellant's brief
If Mr. Raign fails to file appellant's brief on or before July 20, 2017, Mr. Raign may be ordered to appear before a panel of this court to show cause why he should not be held in civil and criminal contempt of this court and/or suspended from practice before this court for violating this court's orders to timely file appellant's brief.
The Clerk of this court shall cause a copy of this order to be served on Mr. Raign by certified mail, return receipt requested, and by United States mail. The Clerk of this court shall also transmit a copy of this order to the Honorable Lori I. Valenzuela, presiding judge of the 437th Judicial District Court, Bexar County, Texas.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and affixed the seal of the said court on this 13th day of July, 2017.
