United States District Court, E.D. Arkansas, Pine Bluff Division
July 28, 2015
CHARLES EDWARD JONES, SR., ADC #144544, Petitioner,
WENDY KELLEY, Director, Arkansas Department of Correction, Respondent.
J. LEON HOLMES, District Judge.
The Court has reviewed the Recommended Disposition ("Recommendation") filed by Magistrate Judge Beth Deere. In addition, the Court has considered Jones's objections to the Recommendation and has reviewed de novo those portions of the record relevant to Jones's objections. After careful consideration, this Court adopts the Recommendation as its own. Charles Edward Jones, Sr.'s petition for writ of habeas corpus is denied and dismissed without prejudice. Document #2.
When entering a final order adverse to a habeas corpus petitioner, the Court must issue or deny a certificate of appealability. Rule 11 of the Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases. A certificate of appealability may issue only if a petitioner has made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(1)-(2). In this case, there is no basis for this court to issue a certificate of appealability. Accordingly, a certificate of appealability is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
