My son have filed a state habeas corpus in Georgia.dodge county. He has been given an evidentiary hearing on his grounds which he presented Pro se before the court. The judge told him he would render judgement within 14 days it has been almost 2 years and he has recieved no answer. He waited too long to file his petition to be eligible for federal review, so he has been told.
There are a lot of fact that a lawyer would need to know to answer this question. Use Avvo's find a lawyer feature at the top of the screen to start your search for an attorney. Check the record at the courthouse to see if a order has been previously entered. Good luck.
