Habeas Corpus Motions
Motions for Habeas Corpus are normally filed after a person has exhausted all appellate remedies. Under the AEDPA (The Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act) a defendant has one year and 90 days to file a writ of habeas corpus under the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. Defendants must exhaust all state remedies, including PDR claims, post-conviction relief motions, state court habeas claims, direct appeals to the circuit courts and highest court.
