|DEBRA SUE DEWBERRY,
Petitioner - Appellant,
NEVILLE MASSIE, Warden,
Respondent - Appellee.
Before petitioner may appeal, she must first obtain a certificate of appealability (COA) under 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c). We may issue petitioner a COA only if we conclude that she "has made a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right." Id. § 2253(c)(2). Based upon our thorough review of the record, petitioner's brief, and the pertinent law, we conclude that petitioner has not made the required showing for a COA.
Accordingly, we DENY petitioner's application for a certificate of appealability, and we DISMISS the appeal.
