IN RE: Andy SANCHEZ

No. 04-17-00615-CR

Decided: October 04, 2017

Sitting: Karen Angelini, Justice Marialyn Barnard, Justice Luz Elena D. Chapa, Justice

MEMORANDUM OPINION

On September 25, 2017, petitioner Andy Sanchez filed a pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus with this court, complaining of his incarceration in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. This court has no original habeas corpus jurisdiction in criminal matters. Dodson v. State, 988 S.W.2d 833, 835 (Tex. App.—San Antonio 1999, no pet.). In criminal matters, the courts authorized to issue writs of habeas corpus are the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, district courts, and county courts. TEX. CODE CRIM. PROC. ANN. art. 11.05 (West 2015). Therefore, the petition for writ of habeas corpus is dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.
