ORDER DENYING PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS

Upon consideration of petitioner Miti Maugaotega, Jr.'s “Complaint for Writ of Habeas Corpus,” filed on February 24, 2017, which we review as a petition for writ of habeas corpus, the documents attached thereto and submitted in support thereof, and the record, it appears that, based on the specific facts and circumstances presented in the petition, petitioner may seek relief in his criminal case in the Pinal County Superior Court in Arizona and presents no sufficient reason for this court to invoke its jurisdiction at this time. Accordingly,

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the petition for writ of habeas corpus is denied.
