Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 2254 and 2255
The Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 2254 and 2255 are federal petitions seeking federal review of a defendant’s conviction and sentence. A 2254 is filed on behalf of an individual in state custody and a 2255 is for an individual in federal custody. It calls for a one year time frame for filing. However, this time is tolled by the filing of a direct appeal or in a 2254, a proper motion under Rule 3.850.
