No habeas relief from criminal orders

In re Herbert (Unpublished Memo): Herbert’s appeal bond was revoked in a criminal case.  He brought a combined habeas corpus/mandamus motion in the Tyler court.  The habeas motion was dismissed for want of jurisdiction because “courts of appeals do not have original habeas corpus jurisdiction in criminal law matters.”  The mandamus was denied because there was an adequate remedy at law — a regular appeal of the order revoking the bond.
