Prisoners in custody of the court may file 2255 motions to vacate their sentences or convictions. In order for the custody requirement brought forth by the 2255 motion to be successful, a defendant must be in prison or be a part of a federal sentence. The defendant must be in probation, parole, supervised release or being released on bail.
2255 motion gives prisoners relief of sentence if their sentence was originally based on a violation of the U.S Constitution or laws. A 2255 motion is also different than a direct appeal because a 2255 motion offers defendants an opportunity to present the court with new evidence. An appeal is dedicated by the district court at the time the notice of appeal was filed.
Filing a 2255 motion comes with certain limitations and procedural rules. The assistance of a qualified lawyer can be critical to the outcome. Criminal defense lawyers understand the significant consequences imprisonment can have on a person's life. A lawyer can properly prepare your case to present it in federal court.
