Habeas Corpus We aggressively fight a system designed to convict you.

Cleveland Habeas Corpus Lawyer

Post-Conviction Relief Representation in Ohio

In some cases, after a conviction the defendant may be able to challenge their imprisonment by filing a writ of habeas corpus. In many cases, the court will schedule an evidentiary hearing before it rules on the writ of habeas corpus. During this hearing, the government and the defendant will be able to present evidence for review.

If a writ of habeas corpus is granted, the defendant may be able to:

  • Change the conditions of their incarceration,
  • Qualify for a reduced sentence, and/or
  • Be released from custody.

To learn if this option may be available to you, contact Patituce & Associates to discuss your situation.

Proving Complex Habeas Corpus Claims in OH

Habeas corpus claims present some of the most complex procedural issues of any criminal litigation. Issues can only overcome procedural default in a federal habeas corpus claim when they have been raised in every step of your direct appeal and rejected by the state’s highest court.

In fancy legal terms, we say that every issue must have been “procedurally exhausted.” Additionally, the claims you raised must allege that the state unreasonably applied the facts in your case or failed to follow a firmly established United States Supreme Court precedent.

Please contact Attorney Kimberly Kendall Corral for information about habeas corpus representation. She can be reached by calling (440) 709-8088.
