Written in layman’s terms, this book provides prisoners an understanding that the courts don't want you to have. This book is not only an informative research guide, but also a simple to understand resource manual. With this book, you will be armed with a unique understanding of the habeas corpus process used by both state and federal prisoners who seek relief in the United States district court system. This book is written to guide the convicted through a complicated web of court rules and statutes that have, throughout the years, been passed and utilized by bar members to deny relief to even the innocent. This book provides form letters, sample motions, and memorandum briefs with full instructions that will likely be needed by every prisoner who seeks justice. This book will assist state and federal prisoners in obtaining documents and an understanding of how to effectively structure Pro Se pleadings. It will teach you how to study criminal cases and evaluate sound constitutional claims. If you or a loved one is or has been a victim of the American criminal justice system, it’s safe to assume that you have looked for guidance in one form or another. It is also safe to say that there exists no single, all encompassing, source that will offer relief in every case. What's needed in every case lies within you and the law, that’s the desire to do justice. This book is different from all others for two reasons: 1. It gives you, in simple terms, an understanding of a right that the United States Constitution guarantees to all people, the right to justice. 2. It provides you the resources and guidelines successfully used by prisoners written from the perspective of an American citizen who has been victimized by an overzealous court. This book provides the experience of an actual habeas corpus petitioner filing in Pro Se, in necessity, rather than the hypothetical theory of a law clerk working for the weekend. Many have found this resource guide a informative tool to help you, the prisoner, gain a better understanding of judicial laws and the legal rights guaranteed to you.
