IN RE: Jerome Jordan

No. 04–14–00738–CR

Decided: October 29, 2014

Sitting:  Sandee Bryan Marion, Justice, Marialyn Barnard, Justice, Luz Elena D. Chapa, Justice


Relator Jerome Jordan filed this pro se petition for writ of mandamus on October 22, 2014, complaining of the trial court's denial of his motion for speedy trial.   Relator has been appointed trial counsel to represent him in connection with his pending criminal charges.   We conclude that any original proceeding on the issue presented should be presented by relator's trial counsel.   Relator is not entitled to hybrid representation.   See Patrick v. State, 906 S.W.2d 481, 498 (Tex.Crim.App.1995).   The absence of a right to hybrid representation means relator's pro se mandamus petition will be treated as presenting nothing for this court's review.   See id.;   see also Gray v. Shipley, 877 S.W.2d 806, 806 (Tex.App.—Houston [1st Dist.] 1994, orig. proceeding).   Accordingly, relator's petition for writ of mandamus is denied.   See TEX. R.App. P. 52.8(a).
