Mohsinuddin Saiyed, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee


FROM THE 426TH DISTRICT COURT OF BELL COUNTY
NO. 75571
, THE HONORABLE MARTHA J. TRUDO, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION

Mohsinuddin Saiyed has filed a notice of appeal seeking relief from a ruling by the court of criminal appeals denying his application for writ of habeas corpus that challenged his felony judgment of conviction for sexual assault. The habeas corpus procedure set out in article 11.07 of the Code of Criminal Procedure provides the exclusive remedy for post-conviction relief in Texas state courts. See Tex. Code Crim. Proc. art. 11.07, §§ 3(a), 5. Article 11.07 vests complete jurisdiction over post-conviction relief from felony convictions in the court of criminal appeals, see id. §§ 3(a), 5; Hoang v. State, 872 S.W.2d 694, 697 (Tex. Crim. App. 1993); In re Parker, No. 03-17-00183-CV, 2017 WL 1228891, at *1 (Tex. App.—Austin Mar. 31, 2017, no pet.) (mem. op.), and this Court has "no jurisdiction in matters pertaining to habeas corpus proceedings initiated under article 11.07," see In re Wood, No. 03-16-00651-CV, 2016 WL 6575240, at *1 (Tex. App.—Austin Nov. 2, 2016, no pet.) (mem. op.). Accordingly, we dismiss Saiyed's appeal for want of jurisdiction.
