ORDER

Pursuant to the provisions of Article 11.07 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, the clerk of the trial court transmitted to this Court this application for writ of habeas corpus. Ex parte Young, 418 S.W.2d 824, 826 (Tex. Crim. App. 1967). Applicant was indicted for burglary of a habitation. He pleaded guilty and was convicted of theft. He later pleaded true to a motion to revoke community supervision and was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment in a state jail facility. The Eleventh Court of Appeals affirmed his conviction. Lister v. State, No. 11-09-00251-CR (Tex. App.–Eastland Jan. 7, 2010) (unpublished).

Applicant raises several grounds of review. He contends, inter alia, that his trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance because counsel did not investigate the facts of the case and allowed applicant to plead guilty to a state jail felony when the actual value of stolen goods was insufficient to support a state jail felony charge. The habeas record contains no response from the State and no findings and conclusions from the trial judge.
