In The Fourteenth Court of Appeals NO. 14-17-00696-CR IN RE VASHAUN SCOTT, Relator ORIGINAL PROCEEDING WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS 174th District Court Harris County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 1506699 MEMORANDUM OPINION On August 22, 2017, relator Vashaun Scott filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus in this court. See Tex. Gov’t Code Ann. § 22.221 (West 2004); see also Tex. R. App. P. 52. In his habeas-corpus petition, relator seeks relief from the terms of his community supervision. The courts of appeals have no original habeas-corpus jurisdiction in criminal matters. In re Ayers, 515 S.W.3d 356, 356 (Tex. App.— Houston [14th Dist.] 2016, orig. proceeding). Therefore, this court is without jurisdiction to consider relator’s petition requesting habeas corpus relief. Accordingly, we dismiss relator’s petition for writ of habeas corpus. PER CURIAM Panel consists of Justices Jamison, Busby, Donovan. Do Not Publish — Tex. R. App. P. 47.2(b). 2
