Writs of Habeas Corpus
Sometimes after a person has been convicted of a crime new evidence arises that calls into question the constitutionality of the conviction. In Texas, an inmate or any person convicted of a felony offense can file an application for writ of habeas corpus under article 11.07 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. Although there is no time limit in which to file an application under article 11.07, the process can be complicated, and involves both the court of conviction and the Court of Criminal Appeals. Partner Corey Young has extensive experience handling 11.07 applications and knows the tricks the State will often use to get an 11.07 writ denied without the court even hearing the merits of the claim.
