Habeas Unit

Statewide representation of clients in post-conviction matters that fall under two general categories of cases: Conviction Cases and Confinement cases. Habeas is often the last chance of attack available to a client.

Conviction Cases may include claims related to actual innocence, ineffective assistance of counsel, and illegal sentences.

Confinement cases may include claims related to disciplinary actions resulting in lost goodtime; medical complaints, failure to award lump sum credits and parole issues.

Habeas is controlled by Rule 5-802.  Clients must submit the habeas petition pro se to the Court.  The Court then forwards the petition to the LOPD habeas unit for review.  Habeas unit meets biweekly and discusses the petitions.  A pre-appointment review is submitted to the court within 45 days of filing the pro se petition.  The Court then decides whether or not counsel will be appointed.  If appointed, LOPD assigned habeas attorney has 90 days to file an amended petition.  The State will then have 120 days to respond.  Habeas is not a fast moving process and typically a case will not get before the Court for a hearing for about a year.
