Habeas Corpus

Federal Appeals – Orange County’s Skilled Habeas Corpus Attorney

Habeas Corpus is arguably one of the most important rights that our Constitution guarantees. In Latin, it means “to produce the body.” Essentially, it is a court order that demands a government official bring the individual that is being imprisoned to a courtroom. Then they must adequately prove that there is a valid reason for that individual’s detainment.

When a writ of habeas corpus is granted, both the defense and the prosecutors have the opportunity to state their case. You need to make sure that you have the best defense attorney on your side to either prove your innocence or reduce your sentence.

Attorney Michael Marley of Marley Law Firm is consistent in his stance to get you the results you need. Marley is known for the aggressive, zealous representation of his clients at every stage of the case.

What Can Habeas Corpus be Used For?

The concept of habeas corpus was first introduced in the 1200s with the Magna Carta. It was later adopted by the founding fathers and is still implemented today. There are multiple usages of habeas corpus that can be applied to post-conviction cases and preliminary issues in criminal cases. Marley will be able to use habeas corpus in these ways:

  • Reduction in the sentence
  • Potential release from prison
  • Stopping illegal conditions of confinement
  • Declaration of rights
  • Questioning the removal to another federal district court
  • Questioning the denial of bail/parole
  • Putting in question the speed of the trial
  • The legality of extraditing a prisoner to a foreign country

Who Can Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus?

Either an inmate or their attorney can petition for an appeal in the form of habeas corpus. Although an inmate can go about it by themselves, it is highly recommended to have an attorney on your side. A successful petition can greatly impact their sentence and their life. Attorney Michael Marley knows what it takes to properly approach a habeas corpus case.
