MONTY V. RIDEOUT, Petitioner,
STATE OF HAWAI'I, Respondent. v.
ORIGINAL PROCEEDING (S.P.P. No. 13-1-001K)
Recktenwald, C.J., Nakayama, McKenna, and Pollack, JJ., and Circuit Judge Aim, assigned by reason of vacancy.
ORDER DENYING "MOTION FOR RELEASE ON OWN RECOGNIZANCE PURSUANT TO H.R.A.P. 23(b)"
Upon review of petitioner Monty V. Rideout's "Motion for Release on Own Recognizance Pursuant to H.R.A.P. 23(b)", which was filed on February 25, 2014, and which we treat as a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, the supporting documents, and the record, it appears that petitioner can seek relief in the circuit court and presents no special reason for the supreme court to invoke its original jurisdiction at this time. See Oili v. Chang, 57 Haw. 411, 412, 557 P.2d 787, 788 (1976) . Moreover, petitioner fails to demonstrate that his release from custody on his own recognizance is fitting under the circumstances. See HRAP Rule 23(b). Therefore,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the petition for a writ of habeas corpus is denied.
