Court of Appeals of Texas, First District, Houston

December 10, 2013

v.
The STATE of Texas, Appellee.

Page 743

Steven Green, Anahuac, TX, for Appellant.

Tom Maness, Jefferson County District Attorney, Wayln G. Thompson, Assistant District Attorney, Jefferson County, Beaumont, TX, for Appellee.

Panel consists of Chief Justice RADACK and Justices BLAND and HUDDLE.

OPINION

JANE BLAND, Justice.

A trial court found Joshua Conner guilty of robbery and assessed punishment at twenty years' confinement after Conner pleaded true to violating the terms of a deferred adjudication agreement. The trial court's judgment assessed a fine of $1,000, $910 in administrative fees, and $623 in court costs. On appeal, Conner contends that the judgment should be modified (1) to delete the $1,000 fine, (2) to credit Conner for time served in a substance abuse treatment facility from July 11, 2012 to January 2, 2013, (3) to delete the administrative fees, and (4) to reduce the court costs. The State concurs with Conner's first two issues. We modify the judgment and affirm the trial court's judgment as modified.

Background

In April 2012, Joshua Conner pleaded guilty to robbery. At a sentencing hearing, the trial court deferred adjudication of guilt, placed Conner on deferred adjudication community supervision for seven years, and assessed a fine of $1,000. The trial court ordered that Conner serve a term of confinement and treatment in a substance abuse facility as well as an after-care treatment plan. In April 2013, the State moved to revoke the community supervision, alleging that Conner failed to complete the after-care treatment plan. In May 2013, the State amended its motion to add the allegation that Conner committed the offense of failure to identify to a police officer. At the June 2013 revocation hearing, Conner pleaded true to both allegations. The trial court found Conner

guilty of robbery. The court assessed punishment at twenty years' confinement but did not orally pronounce a fine. The trial court's judgment, however, assessed a fine of $1,000, $910 in administrative fees, and $623 in court costs.

Discussion

Conner contends that the judgment should be modified (1) to delete the $1,000 fine, (2) to credit Conner for time served in a substance abuse treatment facility from July 11, 2012 to January 2, 2013, (3) to delete the administrative fees, and (4) to reduce the court costs. The State agrees with Conner on issues (1) and (2) but disagrees with Conner on issues (3) and (4). We modify the judgment to delete the $1,000 fine and to credit Conner for time served in a substance abuse treatment facility from July 11, 2012 to January 2, 2013. We address whether sufficient evidence supports the trial court's assessment of administrative fees and court costs.

Standard of Review

We review the sufficiency of the evidence to support the trial court's assessment of administrative fees and court costs by viewing all record evidence in the light most favorable to the judgment. See Mayer v. State,309 S.W.3d 552, 557 (Tex.Crim.App.2010); Cardenas v. State, ...
