Click here for the full text of this decision FACTS:A court of inquiry was called in February 2004 to investigate the alleged sexual assault of Nancy Hollobeke by two El Paso police officers. The court of inquiry found no probable cause to issue arrest warrants. Hollobeke attempts to appeal. HOLDING:Dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. The right to appeal exists only to the extent provided by the legislature. Likewise, the federal and state constitutions do not guarantee a right of appeal to an alleged victim or potential complainant in a criminal case. While the Code of Criminal Procedure contains numerous provisions addressing the rights of crime victims, it does not provide them with a right of appeal, nor do the statutory provisions specifically dealing with courts of inquiry. OPINION:Ann Crawford McClure, J.; Barajas, C.J., McClure and Chew, JJ.
