Carner v. State
In Carner v. State, 592 S.W.2d 618 (Tex. Crim. App. 1980) the juvenile was served with summons one day before the date originally set for the discretionary transfer hearing.
The hearing, however, was reset and was not held until several weeks after the juvenile was served. The juvenile personally appeared at the hearing.
The court of criminal appeals concluded the juvenile court acquired jurisdiction over the juvenile because he was personally served several weeks before the hearing actually occurred and he personally appeared at the hearing. See Carner, 592 S.W.2d at 620.
