Applicant alleges that he was denied his right to petition this Court for discretionary review of the Court of Appeals' opinion because he was not timely informed of the right to file a pro se petition for discretionary review. Counsel's affidavit indicates that, despite his best efforts, he was unable to locate Applicant to provide him with this information. The trial recommends that relief be granted. Applicant is entitled to relief.
Accordingly, Applicant is granted leave to file an out-of-time petition for discretionary review from the Court of Appeals' judgment in cause number No. 05-99-02056-CR affirming the conviction in cause number F98-68024-SN in the 195th Judicial District Court of Dallas County, Texas. The proper remedy in a case such as this is to allow Applicant to file his petition with the Court of Appeals within thirty days of the issuance of this Court's mandate.
