MICHAEL DESHAWN TELLIS, Appellant, v. THE STATE OF NEVADA, Respondent.


ORDER DISMISSING APPEAL

Michael Deshawn Tellis appeals from an order of the district court denying a March 19, 2019, "motion for amended judgment of conviction to include jail time credits." Eighth Judicial District Court, Clark County; Michelle Leavitt, Judge.

Because no statute or court rule permits an appeal from the aforementioned order, we lack jurisdiction. Castillo v. State, 106 Nev. 349, 352, 792 P.2d 1133, 1135 (1990). Accordingly, we

ORDER this appeal DISMISSED.

A claim for additional presentence credit is a challenge to the validity of the judgment of conviction and sentence and, therefore, must be raised in a postconviction petition for a writ of habeas corpus. See Griffin v. State, 122 Nev. 737, 744, 137 P.3d 1165, 1169 (2006). We express no opinion as to whether Tellis could meet the procedural requirements of NRS Chapter 34. --------
