Habeas Corpus Applications In Misdemeanor Cases

Article 11.05 and 11.09 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, control the procedures for a post-conviction application for habeas corpus in a misdemeanor case. The habeas application, in a misdemeanor case, must be presented to either a county court at law or a district court.

Unlike capital and non-capital felony habeas applications, misdemeanor habeas applications do not involve a final decision on relief reserved to the Court of Criminal Appeals. Instead, relief can be granted or denied directly by the trial judge when the application is presented. If the judge denies the application, then the order can be appealed to a higher court. The judge’s order granting or denying relief, however, is appealable.
