Habeas Corpus

Watch this short video where David explains Habeas Corpus in Arizona:

“Habeas Corpus” is a Latin term for “that you have the body”. A Writ of Habeas Corpus is a motion which is filed most frequently to ensure that a Defendant’s imprisonment or detention is not illegal. It is sometimes used to test the legalities of an arrest or a commitment. It may also be used to obtain review of the regularity of an extradition process, the right to or amount of bail, and the jurisdiction of a court which has imposed a criminal sentence. Most often this is used in Federal Court. The State Court system has other devices which can accomplish the same purpose.

Habeas Corpus can be filed at any time. It is most often seen after Appellate rights have been exhausted, and after all Post Conviction Relief Petitions have been denied (although, in the Federal system a PCR is referred to as a USCA §2254 or USCA §2255). Sometimes Habeas Corpus will be filed very early into a case to try and secure the release of a Defendant who is either being held without bond, or who has an unconstitutionally high bond set. Habeas Corpus cases can be very complex, and it will be necessary to schedule an in-office appointment with our law firm in order to determine whether this is the proper method to be utilized in your case.
