Who is Eligible for Habeas Corpus?
Habeas corpus is an extraordinary remedy that can only be used after the appeals process has been exhausted, or when the deadline for an appeal has been missed. If any of the following issues were involved in your appeal, you may be able to petition for a writ of habeas corpus:
- You were convicted under an unconstitutional law
- Your lawyer was incompetent/no lawyer was provided for you
- The prosecutor engaged in misconduct during your trial
- You were not competent to stand trial when you were convicted
- New evidence has been discovered that proves your innocence or completely disproves the prosecution’s case
- The law has changed since your conviction so that your alleged actions are no longer a crime
- Relevant evidence regarding battered women’s syndrome was not introduced at your trial
A writ of habeas corpus can also be used to provide relief from inhumane conditions in prison, such as abuse or medical neglect. Habeas corpus can only be used after you’ve tried and failed to correct the situation through the prison appeals process.
