The applicant was convicted of burglary of a habitation. Punishment was assessed at 10 years’ imprisonment. No appeal was taken from this conviction. HOLDING:Granted. The officials at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Institutional Division are hereby ordered to amend applicant’s records to reflect an additional one hundred and twenty-eight days jail time credit to cover the period from February 5, 2001, until June 13, 2001. The applicant contends that he is being denied time credit for a period he was confined pending a motion to revoke his parole in this cause. The applicant contends that he was confined pending a motion to revoke his parole from January 2001 until June 2001. The trial court filed findings of fact and conclusions of law indicating that the applicant is entitled to partial relief. The trial court’s review of the applicant’s parole records reveal that the applicant was confined pending a motion to revoke parole in this cause from Feb. 5, 2001, until June 13, 2001, and that the applicant has not been given credit for this time. The court determines that the applicant is entitled to relief. Ex Parte Price, 922 S.W.2d. 957 (Tex. Crim. App. 1996); Ex Parte Canada, 754 S.W.2d 660 (Tex. Crim. App. 1988). OPINION:Per curiam.
