Feddie & the Habeas

It's always interesting to see the work of others. Steve Dillard provides us a look at a habeas petition he has done for someone serving 60 years for purse snatching, driving away while someone clung to the vehicle, and possessing a stolen car. After a quick glance, the basis of the argument seems to be that a Rule change in Georgia makes criminal appeals exhausted even though they have not gone to the Georgia Supreme Court and that this rule has retroactive application so that it applies in the petitioner's case.

It's too late for me to do an indepth reading but I plan to do so tomorrow and I commend the petition to ya'll as well.
