A writ, or collateral appeal, is a certain type of appeal different from the typical appeal once a guilty verdict is delivered.
There are a few kinds of writs, the most common being the writ of habeas corpus. A writ of habeas corpus can be filed any time during the criminal case or immediately following the denial of a direct appeal. The core requirement of the writ of habeas corpus is the defendant is in custody being held without due process.
In addition to habeas corpus, there’s also writs of mandamus and writs of prohibition. With all writs and appeals, an experienced defense attorney can counsel you on the best course of action for your particular case. In the course of your defense, there may be reasons to use writs, and your lawyer will know what’s right for you.
