Legal services for incarcerated individuals seeking post-conviction habeas corpus relief in West Virginia

What is post-conviction relief?

Post conviction relief is available to incarcerated individuals after they have been convicted of a crime (whether through trial outcome or plea deal). After conviction, a direct appeal is filed with the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia and if the effort fails, habeas corpus relief may be available.

This sends the case back to the trial court that originally heard it and other errors are addressed that are not available to be addressed on direct appeal, including ineffective assistance of trial counsel and withholding of evidence by the prosecutor.

Success of an appeal or habeas corpus petition means obtaining a new trial, a sentence reduction, or in rare cases, an outright acquittal.

The entire process is long and strenuous, requiring dedication on behalf of the attorney and patience on behalf of the client.
