MOTION TO WITHDRAW GRANTED; AFFIRMED

Pursuant to a plea agreement, J.P. was sentenced to twenty-six months probation for delinquent conduct based on possession of cocaine and was remanded to the custody of the Bexar County Juvenile Probation Department. The State subsequently moved to modify the disposition, alleging J.P. violated the conditions of his probation by theft and associating with gang members. J.P. pleaded not-true and a non-jury trial was held. Following the trial, the trial court modified the disposition and remanded J.P. to the custody of the Texas Youth Commission. J.P.’s court-appointed attorney on appeal filed a brief in which counsel concludes this appeal is frivolous and without merit. Counsel also filed a motion to withdraw.

Counsel’s brief meets the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), High v. State, 573 S.W.2d 807 (Tex. Crim. App. 1978), and Gainous v. State, 436 S.W.2d 137 (Tex. Crim. App. 1969). Specifically, counsel states J.P. and his guardian were provided with a copy of the brief and motion to withdraw and were further informed of J.P.’s right to review the record *fn1 and file his own brief if he wished. In re D.A.S., 973 S.W.2d 296, 299 (Tex. 1998); In re A.L.H., 974 S.W.2d 359, 360-61 (Tex. App.-San Antonio 1998, no pet.). J.P. has not done so.
