    Answered . This is a very complicated area of the law. The answer depends on the details. So, you will need to consult with a criminal defense lawyer. But, you need a specific kind of criminal defense lawyer, one who handles what are called "writs". These lawyers generally do not limit their practice to one city or one part of the state. A few are Terry Kirk (in Austin), Connie J. Kelly (in Austin), and Randy Schaffer (in Houston). Really, the picky details are so important in these cases that the best answer that can be given here is that sometimes a writ application is successful, sometimes not, and you need to discuss it with a lawyer.
