The writ of habeas corpus is probably the most common and well-known writ used in criminal court cases. It is used to mandate that an inmate be brought to trial to determine whether imprisonment is lawful or should continue. Typically, an inmate will argue that imprisonment is unconstitutional. While habeas corpus can be filed in state of federal courts, it can only be granted at the federal level if state avenues have been exhausted.
Habeas corpus can be used to prove that an individual is innocent in his or her case and shouldn't continue his or her prison sentence. It is a way to pardon convicted defendants who may have been wrongfully accused.
