DENY; and Opinion Filed December 7, 2018. In The Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas No. 05-18-01475-CV IN RE QUINCY BLAKELY, Relator Original Proceeding from the 194th Judicial District Court Dallas County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. F15-18020 MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Francis, Evans, and Schenck Opinion by Justice Schenck Before the Court is relator’s December 7, 2018 petition for writ of mandamus and prohibition. To establish a right to mandamus relief in a criminal case, the relator must show that the trial court violated a ministerial duty and there is no adequate remedy at law. In re State ex rel. Weeks, 391 S.W.3d 117, 122 (Tex. Crim. App. 2013) (orig. proceeding). Based on the record before us, we conclude relator has not shown he is entitled to the relief requested. Accordingly, we deny relator’s petition for writ of mandamus and prohibition. See TEX. R. APP. P. 52.8(a) (the court must deny the petition if the court determines relator is not entitled to the relief sought). /David J. Schenck/ DAVID J. SCHENCK JUSTICE 181475F.P05
