RANDY HANOHANO, Petitioner,
STATE OF HAWAI'I, Respondent.
Recktenwald, C.J., Nakayama, McKenna, Pollack, and Wilson, JJ.
ORDER DENYING PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS
Upon consideration of petitioner Randy Hanohano's letter to the supreme court, which was filed and reviewed as a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, it appears that: (1) petitioner, who is incarcerated at Oahu Community Correctional Center awaiting trial in a pending first circuit court case, contends he is being unlawfully detained and offers numerous arguments to support his release; and (2) petitioner can seek relief in the first circuit court and does not present any 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). Therefore,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the clerk of the appellate court shall process the petition for writ of habeas corpus without payment of the filing fee.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the petition for writ of habeas corpus is denied. The clerk of the court shall forward a copy of petitioner's letter to petitioner's attorney.
