Ronnie Deshawn v. Rissie Owens

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA WESTERN DIVISION


June 14, 2011

RONNIE DESHAWN,
PETITIONER,
v.
RISSIE OWENS, BOARD OF PARDONS
AND PAROLES TEXAS DEPT OF CORRECTIONS, ET AL.,
RESPONDENT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Andrew J. Guilford United States District Judge

ORDER DISMISSING PETITION

Petitioner filed this petition for a writ of habeas corpus by a state prisoner on June 7, 2011. For the following reasons, the petition is subject to dismissal.

In 1986, petitioner was convicted of forgery in Texas state court. [Petition at 2]. Subsequently, petitioner was released from prison, but it appears that he remains on parole. [Petition at 5]. He is currently incarcerated in county jail in San Francisco, California. [Petition at 1-2]. Although it is not entirely clear exactly what relief petitioner seeks or what action he attempts to challenge, it is clear that he is neither confined within the Central District of California nor challenging a conviction or sentence entered by a state or federal court within the Central District of California.

Therefore, this petition is not properly brought in this Court. See 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d). The possibility of transferring the case to the appropriate forum has been considered, but given the unclear nature of petitioner's allegations, it seems best to allow petitioner to select the appropriate forum for himself.

The petition is dismissed without prejudice to petitioner's ability to file a new habeas petition in the appropriate court.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
