I would like to assist you with this matter - but I need a bit more information.
Was there a trial or did the inmate take a plea to the charge?
Thank you for the further information ~ Michelle
Yes, there would need to be hearing which is commonly referred to as a Habeas Corpus - what you would be filing is a Post Conviction - this is the only way after all appeals are exhausted to proceed - this involves a brief stating that the charge is wrong and that is based on some error in the law or error on the part of the courts. There should be an accompanying Memorandum of Law with supporting case law on the prinicpals that are bring challenged as in error.
Best of success to you
