Affirmative Finding of a Deadly Weapon
In Polk v. State, we explained that, in a jury trial, a trial court is required to enter a deadly weapon affirmative finding in three situations: where the jury has:
(1) found guilt as alleged in the indictment and the deadly weapon has been specifically pled in the indictment;
(2) found guilt as alleged in the indictment but, though not specifically pled as a deadly weapon, the weapon pled is per se a deadly weapon;
(3) affirmatively answered a special issue on deadly weapon use. See Polk v. State, 693 S.W.2d 391, 394 (Tex. Crim. App. 1985).
