Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.
I'm pleased to share the following information with you. Nebraska procedure imposes a one-year time limit, which is triggered by the later of one of the following five events stipulated as follows (quoting the statutory language):
"(a) The date the judgment of conviction became final by the conclusion of a direct appeal or the expiration of the time for filing a direct appeal;
(b) The date on which the factual predicate of the constitutional claim or claims alleged could have been discovered through the exercise of due diligence;
(c) The date on which an impediment created by state action, in violation of the Constitution of the United States or the Constitution of Nebraska or any law of this state, is removed, if the prisoner was prevented from filing a verified motion by such state action;
(d) The date on which a constitutional claim asserted was initially recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States or the Nebraska Supreme Court, if the newly recognized right has been made applicable retroactively to cases on postconviction collateral review; or
(e) August 27, 2011."
Here's the actual statute along with case law annotations:
Nebraska Revised Statutes § 29-3001
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.
I truly hope all works out for you.
