This is a post-conviction application for writ of habeas corpus filed pursuant to the provisions of Article 11.07, V.A.C.C.P. Applicant was convicted of deadly conduct and punishment was assessed at 9 years in prison. This conviction was affirmed. Suarez v. State, No. 14-99-00704-CR (Tex.App. - Houston [14th], opinion delivered November 2, 2002).
In his present application, Applicant contends that he is not receiving credit for time that he spent in federal custody while he was also serving this sentence. The trial court finds that Applicant was in federal custody for an additional 554 days for which he is not receiving credit. The trial court recommends granting relief. We agree.
