Ex parte James Hearon--Appeal from County Court of Johnson County
TENTH COURT OF APPEALS
EX PARTE JAMES HEARON
From the County Court at Law No. 2
Johnson County, Texas
Trial Court # M9700154
James Hearon filed a pro se application for writ of habeas corpus with this Court asserting that he is unlawfully restrained because of a 1996 misdemeanor charge which remains pending in the court below even though he is currently serving a felony sentence in another case. Hearon states that he filed an identical application with the trial court which has taken no action in the matter.
This Court does not have original habeas jurisdiction in criminal law matters. Dodson v. State, 988 S.W.2d 833, 835 (Tex. App. San Antonio 1999, no pet.); Sanders v. State, 771 S.W.2d 645, 650 (Tex. App. El Paso 1989, pet. ref d). Accordingly, we dismiss Hearon s habeas application for want of jurisdiction.
Before Chief Justice Davis,
Justice Vance, and
Application dismissed for want of jurisdiction
Opinion delivered and filed September 29, 1999
