ON REMAND FROM COURT OF CRIMINAL APPEALS (ON REHEARING)

Following a remand from the Court of Criminal Appeals, we now affirm the judgment of the trial court in this cause. The procedural history underlying this opinion began when this court reversed the judgment of the trial court. Contreras v. State, 998 S.W.2d 656 (Tex.App–Amarillo 1999) (on reh’g). Subsequently, the Court of Criminal Appeals granted the State’s petition for review and, thereafter, reversed and remanded the case back to this court. Contreras v. State, No. 1682-99 (Tex.Crim.App. 2001).

In her initial brief, appellant raised seven issues for our review. The first issue was decided in our original opinion and reported at Contreras v. State, 998 S.W.2d 656 (Tex.App–Amarillo 1999) (on reh’g). For the reasons we stated in that opinion, we remain convinced that our overruling of that issue was correct and we reiterate that ruling. In that opinion, we found appellant’s second issue dispositive of her appeal and did not address the remaining five issues. The Court of Criminal Appeals’ holding necessitates that we now reconsider the second issue and decide the remaining five.
