Applicant alleges that he was denied his right to file a pro se petition for discretionary review because his counsel failed to timely inform him of the fact that his conviction had been affirmed and of his right to pursue a petition for discretionary review on his own. This Court finds, based upon the record, that Applicant was denied his right to file a pro se petition for discretionary review; therefore, Applicant is entitled to relief. Ex parte Wilson, 956 S.W.2d 25, 27 (Tex. Crim. App. 1997).
Accordingly, Applicant is granted leave to file an out-of-time petition for discretionary review from the Court of Appeals' judgment in cause number 14-01-00542-CR affirming his conviction in cause number 840714 from the 174th Judicial District Court of Harris County, Texas. Applicant shall file his petition with the Court of Appeals within thirty days of the issuance of this Court's mandate.
