Writs of Habeas Corpus

An application for a Writ of Habeas Corpus is filed when a person seeks relief from unlawful detention or imprisonment.

If the application is filed prior to disposition of the case, it is filed in the assigned District Court or County Criminal Court at Law.

If the application is filed after disposition of the case, it is filed in the Appellate Section and must be filed on the appropriate form. Post Conviction Writs of Habeas Corpus are heard by the Court of Criminal Appeals. A copy of the clerk's record (the documents submitted to the Court of Criminal Appeals) is available for viewing in the Appellate Section and may be checked out by the appropriate parties.
