Habeas Corpus

Habeas corpus is mainly used as a post-conviction remedy for state or federal prisoners who challenge the legality of the application of federal laws that were used in the judicial proceedings that resulted in their detention. Other uses of habeas corpus include immigration or deportation cases and matters concerning military detentions, court proceedings before military commissions, and convictions in military court. Finally, habeas corpus is used to determine preliminary matters in criminal cases, such as: (i) an adequate basis for detention; (ii) removal to another federal district court; (iii) the denial of bail or parole; (iv) a claim of double jeopardy; (v) the failure to provide for a speedy trial or hearing; or (vi) the legality of extradition to a foreign country.

Because it is collateral of the conviction itself and exclusive of the appellate process, a writ of Habeas Corpus is often the last resort of someone convicted of a crime.  If you feel that you or a loved one is being illegally detained, the Bahuriak Law Group will evaluate whether a writ of Habeas Corpus is the proper action in your circumstance.
