Hi, I'm Stacy. You're right, this is a tough one. Typically these forms are readily available to the general public, as they are in my home state. Let me dig a little further. In what county or Parrish is this conviction coming out of? You're right.
Ok, after doing a lot of digging, it appears as though all habeas writs, even those challenging state convictions, go through federal court in Louisiana. This is a little different than most states. This page specifically says to use Form 2254 to challenge convictions from state court.
I hope this answers your question! Please kindly leave a positive rating as this is the only way experts are compensated for their time on Just Answer.
