POST CONVICTION RELIEF UNDER 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (FEDERAL PRISONERS)
A federal prisoner may be able to invoke 28 U.S.C. § 2241 to challenge their conviction or sentence. This is usually a “last resort” after other methods of post conviction relief prove unsuccessful. For instance, a 2241 petition may be used when there is a change in the law that renders prior conduct non-criminal, or causes the defendant to become “actually innocent” of the the previously imposed sentence. The arguments presented in a 2241 petition are highly complex, and best navigated by an experienced firm like ours. In general, we believe represented parties receive better outcomes when seeking post conviction relief.
