Absolutely love your channel thank you for the information and what you're doing for the people. I have a quick question I have a cousin who is 32 years of age who when 12 years old was charged along with two other boys in a sexual misconduct situation. He had ineffective counsel for he was advised to plead guilty, the other two boys did not plead guilty and their case was dismissed. Now some twenty years later he's being held for failing to register as a sex offender for a conviction that he pled guilty to when he was 12 years old. Does this sound reasonable to you? Must a juvenile seal his records in order to be protected from them being used against him? Thank you for your opinions concerning.

Thank you, brother of the bar, for your presentation. It will help many people understand this legal concept and some of the key writs issuing thereunder. The only thing I would have added at the beginning is the literal Medieval Latin translation, "We [a court] command that you may have the body." That, along with a bit of its history, I think would lay out the basic premise in its historical context for deeper understanding. Nevertheless, an excellent job!

Hi, I have a question. Here's the situation. The Court granted 60 days for the State to answer and be more specific on three grounds on a motion I filed, denying in part all the rest of the allegations. The 60 days went by, I filed a motion to compel regarding no answer as to the order given. The court denied my motion to compel, but granted 60 more days for the State to comply with the Order. It happened again, not complying. What kind of motion should I file now in order for the Court to make a final decision regarding the Order so that I can continue with the proceedings and appeal? Should I file maybe a motion inquiring the State's non-compliance? Thank you for your help if possible.

A friend was involved in a federal criminal case starting 2016, and still serving probation. They DOJ decided to change judges after 3 and a half years on a docket. The judge denied a continuance, the defendant was scheduled for a surgery to rule out cancer and the 70 days expired . The criminal attorney was informed the 70 days expired by the US ada and judge. He did not counsel or advise his client, who paid thousands of dollars for a competent criminal defense attorney, he just agreed to sign an Unopposed Motion to Continue. The defendant found out unfortunately 18 plus months later. There was a question continued to be asked , why are you asking me to sign back dated guilty plea in May and June ,2020, that is dated in February of 2020. The criminal defense attorney just brushed it off and said that's something that can be fixed at a later time just sign the damn paper . When the defendant refused to sign the guilty plea, she was thrown into solitary confinement and pre trial probation yanked from her and no modification granted for ability to do house arrest or other modifications stating she was a threat to society. The defendant was a first offense , non violent crime, and the crime did not a weapon. Days prior to this, she was treated in the emergency department for stroke versus hypertensive crisis. The two week Detention in solitary confinement caused her to have repeated panic attacks in custody, chest pain, exacerbation of PTSD, excruciating post traumatic pain from a previous head on collision ,which she took scheduled pain medication for ,were abruptly stopped the two weeks, and fear . She was released only after agreeing to sign the guilty pleas. The defendant now has some form of type I heart failure not diagnosed prior to their unlawful detainment to force a signed guilty plea back dated from Feb. 2020. We were now in early June . They claimed 5 pages of pretrial violations back dated 4 years. The former judge was known as one of the toughest their...........Wouldn't you think, if she really had 5 pages of pretrial violations, that strict judge would have yanked her pre trial probation a long time before 4 years after the fact?

Sir, I am neither a lawyer nor a criminal. I've just developed an interest in learning how our laws work.

My question would be if a criminal rightly convicted in a court of law could use a post conviction writ of habeas corpus to challenge his/her penitentiary assignment if they feel it is extreme in relation to their crime?

An example would be if a person convicted of habitual drunk driving offenses were assigned to a maximum security prison where there were high levels of violence.

Hi Gustitis, interesting Thankyou. I have a question. It’s interesting that Habeas Corpus is ingrained in the 7th amendment of the US constitution and whilst this is the case this is the relative freedom that US people have in the freedom of religion. I.e cannot be accused of carrying out a criminal activity if they are innocent preachers etc. This is quite different to the Russian constitution, did you know that Habeas Corpus is not part of the Russian constitution and that is why religious persecution is rife right there and now. It seems that if the US and UN want this persecution to stop they need to make sure that the Russian Constitution has this Avenue engrained in their constitution, is there anything that can be done about this please?...,

stefano lorenzo
stefano lorenzo:
I worked on a habeas corpus pursuant to Art. 11.07 (a post-conviction writ). I was assisting the lawyers in formulating the petition. Here was a case a defendant was indicted for intoxication manslaughter by causing his motor vehicle to collide into a motor vehicle causing the death of the driver. 3 years after the original grand jury issued the indictment, the day of trial, the State announced that it will reindict the defendant and add two paragraphs of prior convictions. However, a week before the trial date the State filed a motion to amend the indictment "off the record" to change the nature of the offense. The State sought to change how the offense occurred. Instead of colliding a motor vehicle into a motor vehicle, the State alleged that the defendant drove his motor vehicle and collided it into a pole, thereby causing the death of the passenger (in the defendant's vehicle). Now in Texas, the State can Amend an indictment to form or substance, but it cannot amend an indictment over the defense's objection if the amendment violates the defendant's substantial rights or charges the defendant with a different offense. The State argued that even though the amendment was made "off the record", the defendant was still charged with the same statutory offense. The retort was, the State changed the grand jury's offense of the indictment, including the deadly weapon and how the victim died. Then the State had claimed that a grand jury reindicted the defendant as it issued two paragraphs. The reindictment was not attached to the original indictment or its court minutes. It was as the original indictment never existed. Our position was that the State illegally tampered with the indictment to claim the grand jury reindicted the defendant and added the new language while the original indictment remained pending with its original offense. The records had shown that the second grand jury merely added the two paragraphs and did not add any substitution of language. The State used the Amendment to have the grand jury add in the language. And it was all off the record. The judge and prosecutor involved did not preside over the case or prosecute the case and sought to distance themselves away from the trial. The judge assigned a new prosecutor and had a visiting judge preside over the case for the trial. The defendant was convicted. The case was overturned 7 years after the defendant had been convicted.

How does this play out in an extradition case where a court has detained a prisoner for double the amount of time allowed using covid 19 as the excuse to give the asking or extraditing state additional time? In this case, the prisoner being held in California. What would be the turnaround time if the writ was submitted to an appellate judge/court?

i have a friend who lost his work release in jail by showing up positive on his first UA (drug test). However, they don't have the drug test saved anywhere. When I asked them about their chain of custody, they were baffled, as they didn't know what I was talking about. Eventually, they provided a photo of an unmarked drug test. There is nothing that states whos drug test it is. I dont think their is any way they can prove that this is his drug test. Is this something I could use Habius Corpus for to get his work release reinstated?

I have a case I would love to share with you and get your second opinion. I’d love to speak with you and if that’s possible I can share my phone number. This case I’m in involves a traffic stop, prolonged unnecessary stop “investigation”, cops using conduct unbecoming of an officer, Violation of South Carolina’s Truth to Arrest Act of 2006 which resulted in me basically being kidnapped and imprisoned, failure to Mirandize, bond extortion, harassment, prosecutorial abuse of power. That’s just the stop. There are so many more aspects dealing with my health, criminal record, negligence by Sentinel (a privately owned monitoring company the county and state contracts defendants on house arrest to), negligence by the detention center staff that nearly caused my death but did result in me having surgery that turned a small hole into a long scar and a port hole replacement that hurts constantly now. A warrant I was not given the chance to see when cops stormed my home and violated my 4th Amendment rights while they stood over me and my teenage son with their firearms drawn. The warrant is based on crappy “surveillance” statements and lies by the officer, people they arrested or pulled over for just coming down the street I live on that I don’t even know. People that they questioned and gave them my name and address. Like did you stop and such and such where B lives? Then giving them information about the case I’m facing because I rode in a car and stood up for mine and my friends rights. When they finished destroying my property (home and out building) on their evidence taken list it had NOTHING TAKEN. The first lawyer I had tried to get me to plead. I can’t. I took out a loan and paid a defense lawyer who also tried to get me to plead. I told him if I was gonna do that I wouldn’t have taken out a loan I’m going to struggle to pay back to hire you. By pleading the prosecutor offered me probation which I can’t pay, I don’t have a car so getting to probation and back home will be unconvincing for anyone who I asked for a ride so that’s both violation offenses which will land me in prison. Not to mention his plea is still a felony and that takes away my 2nd Amendment right which I had a CWP to carry but until this case is done I can’t have it or my firearm. My 2nd Amendment as a disabled person who has to use a device that is visible for anyone wanting and not wanting to do me harm to see. That at least gives me a deterrent or an equalizer which would be a last resort. The night that started all this I was with a friend so I left my firearm at home. Which I see as probably being a good slip of my memory in retrospect. So many ins and outs of this buffoonery I’m dealing with.

Was the same judge / ex lawyer supposed to judge his case and over sentence him in both cases?
I have never understood pretrial conditions of release, like no alcohol. I understand no drugs or not breaking any other laws, but no alcohol? Why? What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

All I can say is in Polk county, detainment is the 1st thing they do to both parties because it brings $300 per day per person. One accusation from a perpetrator is all it takes to be detained. Property owners are in great danger, they have no regard for securing your property when they do detain you. Your one call is almost impossible to make. I am not nearly as afraid of criminals as I am legal kidnapping. I have learned that calling 911 for help is dangerous.

I have a friend that’s incarcerated in Tn and has been transferred to the Penal farm on 2/13/2020. He was denied parole and extended to come forth the Board of Parole on 06/2023 . He signed for a plea bargain ( guilty ) with thre counts of crim-att 2 & reckless endangerment. Where the incident was he was shot 7times but the 3 victims were shot once and only 1 person came to testify against him. All of this happened at PreTrial. Does he have a chance to do this Writ and get something going? He also has put in a request to Suspend Remainder of Sentence Due to Covid 19 . His respiratory system is very fragile ( a bullet in his chest and two next to his spine ) . His Public Defender coerced him into signing by presurring him that a worse outcome will happen if he doesn’t take the 10yrs... Best advice ?

My girlfriend pled guilty to a murder charge 20 years ago. There was a plea agreement for life with the possibility of parole. After pleading guilty the judge decided not to accept the agreed upon recommendation and sentenced her to life without parole. When she pled guilty she was not aware that the judge could decide to not allow the suggested sentence and that she would not have the right of appeal with a trial by jury. Would her plea be considered involuntary without understanding that the judge could give her the maximum sentence and that she would have no right of appeal?

So I was wondering if I qualify for a writ of habeas corpus because I have been sentenced and put on probation for some charges and that happened 4 years ago however I've been proved my situation and I don't agree with the plea agreement I did it because my my attorney kind of pressured me into it just to get it over with I and since it happened it had to do with a driving matter and I've got my license since then and became legal and the it's the way that they did it though is I don't think I'm fair and just I pledge to the charges that they knew would get wouldn't get dropped and I want to know if I qualify for this it's a kind of a rather unique situation and it's it takes a while to explain the whole sequence of events that happens in in the in the case so it would it would take me a while to explain it all but by the time it was standing over with it was not I don't feel they're interested

Mr G. I recommended your channel to a dear friend who’s son seems to be unconstitutionally confined with an insane bond amount.
I’m talking a cool million Mr G.
Something about child porn possession. I feel so bad for her as a good Christian mother I’ve known for 50 years. The son is sick and needs treatment for sure but a bail of this size is surely unconstitutional. I wish I had more details but her lawyer has not provided her with discovery. This was last November. The lawyer should have given her discovery by now don’t you agree? Or maybe because she has not insisted it? I know the kid possibly has prior convictions possibly drug possession and prior child porn not sure so maybe there’s more to the story that I can comprehend but 1 million bond? Also she is running into the same old song and dance of court being delayed because of coronavirus just like I did. I have a hard time accepting people being locked up for vast amount of time without being allowed bond reduction hearing’s and other motions due to a pandemic. How is it that people can be held in jail indefinitely because of a pandemic especially when the federal government let out I believe 7000 people because of it only to , as of lately, recall them back to prison. This is a case in Illinois. I hear Illinois is quite corrupt so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it or not what are your thoughts?

Can we apply for Habeas Corpus petition on behalf of a minor girl(16+ years) who has been rescued from her biological parents as they wanted to sell her in the name of early marriage and now is confined at Government shelter and she is not allowed to communicate anybody else related to the child.
My husbands Writ is currently being reviewed by the courts. A lady that testified under pressure by the DA, I even have a text message from this woman saying that she refused to testify and that she was pressured by the DA, wants to submit an affidavit on behalf of my husband stating this very thing. How ever since this case has already happened, Im not supposed to contact this woman due to victims rights. How do I get this affifdavit from her if Im not supposed to be contacting her? With out me getting in trouble?

Please explain what this means in terms of Barr & the announcement this weekend.

What if Habeas Corpus was denied during pre trial?

What about this writ in a parental alienation scenario forcing the other parent to deliver a child after they've failed to follow numerous court orders?
